Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

Today's National Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day. I hope none of you have had to endure the pain of losing a baby... I wouldn't wish it on anyone. On November 15, 2000 my son Matthew was born "sleeping". Everyday I think of him and wish I could hold him and tell him how much I loved him and wanted to be his mommy. Please light a candle at 7:00 PM in memory of all the lost little ones.

Here's a yummy twist on a peanut butter ball. The filling's peanut butter-yummy! Thanks for the recipe Suzie Homemaker.

CHOCOLATE COVERED PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE BITES
1 8 oz block Cream Cheese (softened)
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup splenda
chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating

Mix all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl with an electric mixer. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Roll the mixture into 3/4-inch balls. Dip balls into melted chocolate/candy coating and then chill for an additional 15 minutes before serving.

7pm...I'll be lighting a candle...not for me tonight...but for you. I'm sure Matthew's waiting patiently for you in heaven. Thanks for the easy recipe. Sounds fun and quick to make. Come on by our blog for a look. Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com

Thinking of you today... My sister-in-law also lost her baby girl the day she was born. What special mothers you are! Here's a link to baby Zion-Grace's site: http://healthymarriagetips.com/ziongrace.htm

Are you kidding - these look amazing and will be trying them soon. I bake every weekend - one of my passions.
Sorry to hear about your son and am glad there is a day to honor all the little babies. I know several other women, who today are honoring their babies as well.

My heart goes out to you, Heidi. I can't imagine losing my baby. That is really touch. My mother-in-law also lost her baby when he was only 2 and it's just something that I don't think I can bear. I'm so glad that you're so strong and sharing your amazing talent with all of us.

The peanut butter cheese balls sound amazing! Yesterday I was craving something made w/ peanut butter. I think I will try it. Thanks!

"tough" was what I meant...

Our daughter was born sleeping on october 7 2002. This month is tougher than all others for me. We are in a club that none of us wanted to be part of. Thinking of you and knowing how you feel Clare

A yummy looking dessert. I will be thinking of all of us out there with angel babies (myself included). Today, and every day....

Stephanie said...

Ohhh, you had me at Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cheesecake! :-D Yum, yum!!

I'm sorry about your baby boy. Our son Joshua was born at 26 weeks in 2004 and only lived a few minutes. Losing a child is truly a pain that I would not wish on anyone.

Thanks for sharing about our special awareness day.

My candle will be lit tonight for you, your baby boy and all of the other little angels...

The recipe looks so yummy. Thank you for sharing it.

Chicago Mom said...

I lit a candle for you and my dear friend Julia whose little angels were born sleeping.

Ingrid said...

Yum, those sound good! I still haven't made the oreo ones. I'm gonna have to give them both a try! Perhaps for Halloween parties.

Those look yummy. I am so sorry about loosing your little guy that just makes me so sad. I will light a candle for Mathew and all other other beautiful angels.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts are with you today, my friend.

yummy and simple. thanks

Rachel said...

I can't even begin to imagine your pain, Heidi! I am so very sorry for your loss.

As for your recipe...it looks delicious! I'd almost be afraid to make them, b/c they'd be gone in all of five minutes! Oh, and I felt awful about you not winning that cook-off! Your recipe sounded delicious and certainly way more "complex" than the winner! I definitely agree that they should have judged it differently. They should have sampled each individual dish, jotted down some notes and then gone back and discussed all of them and compared what they liked/disliked. Ughh! I know you were really hoping for that grocery money!

I lost my first baby. It is something you never forget. It made me a bit misty eyed reading this today. It was thoughtful of you to mention it.

Your treats look very scrumptious!

I also think your new profile picture is very cute! :0)
