peanut butter fluff bites~ think of it as fluffy peanut butter coated in dark chocolate…
A little while ago, Foodbuzz commissioned me to create a recipe using COOL WHIP whipped topping as an ingredient. Easy, right? The hard part was deciding which recipe to create and share. I have a collection of recipes that use COOL WHIP as an ingredient, some oldies that are handwritten on scraps of paper, to old and yellowed clippings from newspapers of days gone by.More recently, I got a recipe from a fellow mom- that I jotted down by coping it on a index card off her cell phone. Ahh, the joys of modern technology- instant recipe access for when you’re cruising the grocery store isles.
Because I’m known to add peanut butter to a lot of things. I also LOVE this recipe because it’s no-bake. I’m not sure about where you live, but it’s nearing 90 these days where I live.
To make these you mix 2 1/2 cups melted peanut butter chips with 12 ounces of COOL WHIP, then you spread it in a pan that has been lined with waxed paper. Like this:

- 1 bag candy coating chips
