These are SO good and perfect for a quick snack and just enough chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. I made ours with just chocolate, but I think coconut would be a good addition too.
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup crisp rice cereal
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries, raisins, chocolate chips or coconut (mix and match these however you want, but all together there should only be 1/2 cup)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, peanut butter, and butter. Stir until melted and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from heat; stir in cereal and oats. Let the mixture cool for about five minutes and stir in the chocolate chips/coconut/dried cranberries/raisins.
Drop mixture by the tablespoon into mini paper cupcake or candy liners. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. (I just skipped the cupcake holders/liners and put them directly on the baking sheet.)
What did the family think? Only two of us have had any so far, but these are SO yummy and perfectly bite-sized.
Where did this recipe come from? I got it from Two Peas and Their Pod and they got it from Martha Stewart.
