Peanutbutter Bites Mix

Some quick tips for the best results. Mix your dry ingredients thoroughly. A fork or a whisk work well, and the little bits of powdered sweetener dissolve nicely in the hot oil.

If you don’t have a double boiler available, then you can use a heat safe bowl over a small saucepan with water. Alternatively, the oil can be heated directly in a saucepan or the microwave, but if you need to keep your finished mixture warm after you’ve combined your dry ingredients and oil, then you want to have the double boiler set up.

Peanutbutter Bites Mixing

Be sure to thoroughly mix the dry ingredients into the hot oil. There should be no clumps or powder remaining.
