It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere on my blog!
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! I just love everything about it, all of the decor, twinkle lights, food, sweet treats, and giving. These easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Ornaments are the perfect treat to make when you are fixing up all that traditional Christmas candy to share with friends and neighbors. Why not throw a cute festive treat in with all those original candy recipes?!
After using these Skippy PB Bites back in the fall to make Peanut Butter Pumpkins, I just knew I had to use them for Christmas. With only 3 Ingredients you can whip these up in no time.
When this idea came to me to make ornaments, I wondered how I would make hooks. As I was shopping, I kept my eye out for the perfect item. I ran across Wilton sprinkles in the Christmas section at Walmart. Low and behold there was a container of sprinkles that had red candy canes and white candy canes. That was the easiest hunt for candy hooks ever. So, that goes to show they are really easy to find. Actually, every ingredient in this recipe can be found at Walmart.
Peanut Butter Ornaments
- Skippy Peanut Butter Bites
- Vanilla Candy Melts, Green and Red
- Wilton candy cane sprinkles
Melt your candy melts according to package directions. Using a toothpick, insert into a peanut butter bite and dip into melted vanilla candy. Swirl around until completely coated. Tap off excess. Place on parchment or wax paper. Remove the toothpick and stick a candy cane sprinkle in the top to appear as a hook. Eat and Enjoy!
You can also add sprinkles to the ornaments like glitter. I would keep the Peanut Butter Bite on the toothpick after dipping in candy coating. Then I would hold it over a bowl and pour the sprinkles over the ornament. Don’t dip the ornament in the sprinkles. It messes the candy coating up. Kinda smashes in odd shapes.
