Quick and Easy 3-Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Logs

Call me crazy, but I thought this one up in my head at 11:30 at night while watching a Formula 1 race on TV! After the race, at 12:30 in the morning, I made this using three slices of bread to see how it would turn out. I meant to "taste" one, and leave the rest for the rest of my family, but I should've known better, really...Try this one, I promise you'll love it as much as I did!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cooking spray
  • 12 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, divided (I use Hersheys)
  • 2 tablespoons natural-style peanut butter, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celcius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Spray a cookie sheet lightly with cooking spray.
  3. Trim the edges of the bread slices.
  4. Roll out each bread slice individually into a 1/8 inch thick"sheet" using a rolling pin.
  5. Ensure that the bread does not crumble or tear.
  6. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter horizontally over the lower half of a single pressed bread slice (the side of the bread near you).
  7. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of chocolate syrup evenly over the remaining half of the bread slice.
  8. You should now have a bread slice with two horizontal sections; the one on top with chocolate syrup, and the one below with peanut butter.
  9. Roll the bread slice tightly from top to bottom, from the chocolate syrup-filled layer to the peanut butter layer.
  10. Using a sharp knife, cut this"log" into half, making two shorter"logs".
  11. Repeat for the remaining 11 slices of bread.
  12. Arrange these"logs", seam side down, on the prepared cookie sheet.
  13. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  14. Serve warm, or cool completely on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

These were a little dry, so more peanut butter and chocolate the next time I make them. I also had issues with my bread falling apart during the pressing and rolling, and also after they cooled. It might depend on what type of bread you are using. I did enjoy them and think they would be great for a kid's snack in a lunch!
