Peanut Butter Honey Balls:
This recipe is fun and extremely easy! Whenever the snack pantry was empty, I could always rely on this fun easy recipes for kids after school when I was starving for some sweet goodies. I got this recipe in a library book at the time, and have found there are tons of variations on it. I’ve also done a few variations of my own.
One half cup of honey
(alternative sweeteners *not* recommended as the taste would vary too much)
One cup of dry milk – nonfat
One half cup of graham crackers
One half cup of peanut butter (with nuts, or without)
Cold snack preparation:
Take the assorted ingredients and stir them up in a bowl. You can use a spoon, or even a fork for this. Just make sure that everything is stirred up until it has a smooth texture. Roll them into round shapes, the size of your choosing. Then put them in the refrigerator.
Hot snack preparation:
After they have been chilling in the refrigerator for a time, take the assortment of balls and heat them at 350 degrees in the oven for no more than 5 minutes, or heat them in the microwave for no more than 1 minute. Then, enjoy!
You can add these in either during the stirring process or to top them.
Dried chocolate milk (e.g. Nestlé’s Quick)
powdered sugar Raisins
