Honey Bee Mines
What a fun treat these healthy little bees are. Made with honey and peanut butter, and striped with chocolate, these sweets are truly the bee's knees.Yield: Makes 2 dozen
|1/2 cup||peanut butter|
|1/3 cup||softened butter|
|1 1/4 cups||crushed crisped rice cereal|
|1/4 cup||chocolate chips|
1 Combine the peanut butter, butter, honey, and crushed crisped rice cereal in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed.
2 Shape teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and chill them until firm.
3 Measure the chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl and heat them in the microwave for 15-second intervals, until they are melted (note: they won't lose their shape). Stir the chocolate with a wooden spoon until smooth.
4 Drizzle chocolate stripes over the honey balls.
5 For bee wings, set two almond slivers on top of each honey ball, using a dab of chocolate to secure them and fanning them toward the sides just a bit. Makes about 2 dozen.
