January 24th is National Peanut Butter Day. Who knew, right? I’m not sure who decides these things but we love peanut butter around here. In fact, it’s pretty much it’s own food group so we are more than happy to celebrate.
This recipe has been around since my little brother took Home Ec in middle school. It was the easiest recipe for us to make on our own without the supervision of our mom. It was always a favorite for us and now is a favorite for my kids. I’ve cleaned it up a bit because it originally had corn syrup in it.
PEANUT BUTTER KRISPIE BALLS
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups of a rice cereal, like Rice Krispies.
1. Measure and prepare all ingredients before starting and place the rice cereal in a separate bowl. (Once this recipe begins, it’ll be done rather quickly.)
It will be very smooth.
4. Pour the peanut butter mixture into the rice cereal and mix until the cereal is all coated.
