Well, Laura at “Heavenly Homemakers” has done it again. She has taken a simple recipe, used whole ingredients, and provided my recipe box with one more “make often” recipe.
These chocolate mudballs just hit the spot! They are great when you are wanting a bit of a chocolate treat, but use ingredients like wheat germ and oats to make them a treat that has some health benefits. Love that!
I whipped them up in literally minutes, right before I left for my Tuesday Night Women’s Bible study group. These women are often my taste testers with new recipes, I love their honesty and can count of the variety of tastes in the room to know whether or not a recipe is blog worthy! (I made bars that resembled bird seed one week and we all wondered if the birds would even eat them…they were NOT good:) These little mudballs received rave reviews, so here they are!
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup sesame seeds
Cook the peanut butter on honey over low heat until melted. Add remaining ingredients. When cool enough to handle roll into oohey gooey mud balls.
This batch made 12 balls, next time I will double the recipe.
My girls loved these. They felt like they were eating cookie dough, and were disappointed that we had to share with my group! I made them yesterday, and plan on going to the store for more sesame seeds so I can make them again today.
I had a reader send me a recipe she thought I would like (how sweet is that?) and she was right on. They are balls that are just like these, with just a couple ingredients switched up- they use ground flax seed instead of wheat germ, so it would be a great way to get those Omega 3’s! Here is the link to that recipe if you want to check it out, the link will take you to a Disney website. I will let you know when I make them how they turn out.
