Chocolate peanut butter balls

We were going to visit family for morning tea when I had a moment of panic and realised I had nothing to take. In these situations no bake bites are my go to.

That day, I was wanting to feel like a kid again so looked for ingredients that would conjure up fond childhood memories. That ingredient for me is peanut butter.
Peanut butter with honey on toast was my weekend indulgence. I loved the sweet and salty combination. 
So with almond biscuits in the pantry and an abundance of peanut butter at my disposal I got to work.
