Can I use a mini muffin tin instead?
Feel free to use a mini muffin tin instead of a regular-sized one. You’ll make almost double or triple the amount.
Swap the nut butter: can’t do peanuts? Use almond butter or cashew butter instead and make sure to swap the peanuts, too.
Add an extract: A little bit of vanilla or almond extract in the base of these would be delicious.
Use a dried fruit: Instead of mini M&M’s, use a dried fruit such as strawberries, raisins, or blueberries.
Make sure to store these chocolate peanut butter no bake treats in the freezer. If they sit on the counter, they will get too hot and fall apart like a melting snowman.
