These No-Bake Peppermint Chocolate Bites are simple, healthy and ready in minutes. This gluten-free recipe would make a great addition to your holiday cookie tray!
I can hardly believe that it’s almost the middle of December and I’ve barely made any Christmas cookies! The other day I made a batch of these Peanut Butter Cookies with Fresh Cranberries so that I could update the photos, but that’s about it. I tend to make the same cookies over and over again every year, which is fine, but this year I decided I wanted to add something new to the mix.
I had some dates that I needed to use up so I thought I’d try to put a festive spin on my usual energy ball. Since there’s pretty much nothing more festive than candy canes, that’s the route I decided to go. For a little variety, I drizzled half with white chocolate but feel free to do the whole batch one way or the other if you prefer!
These bites come together super quickly, are full of mint flavor and require just a few ingredients!
Here’s how you make them:
Aren’t they just so freaking festive?! Makes me want to eat the whole batch ASAP. Also keep in mind that if you like mint and want to forego the candy canes, you could eat these as mint chocolate energy bites year round!
I enjoyed mine straight out of the freezer, but they also do fine stored in the fridge. They don’t really freeze all the way through so you can easily bite into them even right when you take them out.
