Honey Peanut Butter & Chocolate Balls

Here's the peanut butter ball recipe I was looking for.

Honey peanut butter & chocolate balls
(Adapted from: http://www.whatscooking.fns.usda.gov/recipes/supplemental-nutrition-assistance-program-snap/honey-milk-balls)

Servings: about 16 (depends on size)

1/4 cup honey
2 heaping tablespoons  peanut butter
2 heaping tablespoons dry milk, low-fat/non-fat
2 heaping tablespoons chocolate mix (cocoa milk mix)*
1/2 cup cereal, crushed+
1 dab of olive oil

*My cocoa mix is a mixture of Chocolate Ensure and a powdered cocoa milk mix.
+I used bran flakes.

Mix honey and peanut butter.
Gradually add the dry milk and  cocoa mix.
Stir mixture. Mixture will be very stiff.
Chill to make "dough" easier to roll.

Add dab of olive oil to one palm, rub palms together, to make it easier to roll the "dough."
Take a small amount of mixture and roll between palms.
Roll ball in crushed cereal.
Sprinkle some cereal over ball.
Roll in palms again. (optional)

Place finished balls in small container.
Cover when done.
Chill until firm.


These peanut butter balls are best when "frozen."

I am going to try the same recipe but coat the balls with different types of crushed cereal and make some with crushed cookies.


I made more peanut butter balls with three types of cereal.

The winner is Choco Krispies. They were tasty and crunchy. I will skip the crushed cookies for now.
