I've written about them before, I think, and linked to their original recipe from My Kitchen Cafe, but I've tweaked the way I make them just a little bit. So here, therefore, is our current favorite snack:
Peanut Butter Crunch Balls
1/2 C natural applesauce
3 Tbsp powdered milk1 C honey
3 C creamy peanut butter
3 C crushed cereal
3/4 C Grape Nuts or Bran Buds cereal
1 C regular-sized (not mini - heh) chocolate chips
In small bowl, combine applesauce and powdered milk. Add to honey, peanut butter, cereals, and chocolate chips in a large bowl; mix thoroughly. Roll into 1" balls and place on a waxed paper covered cookie sheet. Place entire sheet into freezer until balls are solid. Place balls in a lidded bowl or plastic baggie, and store in freezer.
I love to make these by cleaning out all the almost-finished boxes of cereal in our cupboard, and the girls get very excited when they know peanut butter balls are in the works. Make them SOON and let me know what you think!
Happy Saturday, friends!
