No-Bake Peanut Butter & MnM Gems

If you’re the kind of person who happily eats spoonfuls of peanut butter right from the jar (guilty!), then this recipe is for you. With monster cookies in mind, I was looking for a quick fix that required less ingredients and fewer steps. I’ve had no-bake desserts in the past and always wanted to create my own. What better time to do so than the final hot days of summer?

With half a package of Neufchatel cheese left from my coconut frosting and an unopened jar of peanut butter waiting in my cabinet, I felt inspired. This yummy treat came together in a matter of moments with an insanely delicious result. I would love to tell you how many are in a serving, but I ate too many along the way to know for sure.

Soft, rich peanut butter intertwined with sweet, chocolately MnMs all in a perfect pop-in-your mouth morsel!


4 oz. Neufchatel cheese

1/2 cup reduced fat smooth peanut butter

1 tablespoon agave syrup

1/2 cup peanut butter Cheerios

1/2 cup MnMs


Pulse Cheerios in a food processor to make crumbs.

Blend together peanut butter, Neufchatel and cereal crumbs until a dough forms.

Add agave syrup and mix until blended.

Gently fold in MnMs.

Form into balls by scooping dough with a tablespoon and rolling it between your palms.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Eat and enjoy trying to get away without sharing these!
