I meant to get this post up yesterday, but I got busy and ran out of time…or maybe I ran out of energy first. (Huh? Sleeping? Me? No, I’m looking at my iPad…or maybe just resting my eyes…a…bit…zzz) Anyway, here’s a fun little no bake recipe to make Peanut Butter Honey Balls. They are kind of a cross between a cookie and a piece of chewy fudge. I made some for my hubby for Valentine’s Day yesterday. You only need 4 ingredients plus something to roll them in for decoration or added taste, if you like, but they can be eaten “plain”. Here’s what you need:
1 Cup nonfat dry milk, 1/2 Cup peanut butter, 1/2 Cup honey and 1/2 Cup graham cracker crumbs. Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl until well blended.
Shape into 1 inch balls. I laid mine on a piece of wax paper.
Roll in desired coating or leave plain. For coatings, I used miniature dark chocolate chips, miniature milk chocolate chips, powdered sugar and colored sprinkles.
Chill them in the refrigerator if they need to firm up a bit. I prefer to eat them at room temperature but that’s your choice. Makes about 24 balls.
One note: If you use natural or organic peanut butter, I suggest cutting back a little on the dry ingredients. Mine came out a little dry and it was a little bit challenging to get the pieces of the coatings to stick. Have fun and Happy Friday to you! 🙂
