It was my first time bringing food for Audrey's Mommy and Me class at the local adult school 2 weeks ago. Since it was a Valentine's potluck party, I wanted to bring something fun and cute but healthy as well. I used a super easy recipe from an old Parent's magazine and stuck the batch in a leftover Janie and Jack box. Just for fun, I wrote "Stuck on You Peanut Butter Puffs" on a sticker label. And it was a hit with everyone, including the teacher and other mommies. Yay! I'm making them again tmwr for a special treat that takes about 10 minutes.
1/4 cup honey or agave nectar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 3/4 cup puffed rice cereal (I just bought the generic brand at Target--exactly like Rice Krispies)
Heat honey and brown sugar in saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Stir until smooth.
Add rice cereal until evenly coated. Set mixture aside to cool.
Use small cookie dough scoop to scoop out small balls and place into mini cupcake liners. (One batch yields 16 balls, depending on how large your scoop is.)
Chill in fridge until set, 5-10 minutes.
Can last up to 3 days (if they're not gobbled up!) if stored in airtight container.
Second time making this, I skipped the brown sugar altogether (sweet enough with honey and PB).
Use organic honey and PB to make it a healthier treat.
