  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup raisins, mini-chocolate chips or mini-chocolate candies

Directions: Remember to Wash Your Hands!

1. Line a 9x13-inch pan or baking sheet with wax paper so cookies won’t stick.
2. In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, honey and peanut butter. Stir until well mixed.
3. Stir in cereal, raisins, chips or candies.
4. Using hands or cookie scoop, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on wax paper.
5. Refrigerate 1 hour. Serve right away or place in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Helpful Hints:

If you spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring honey, it will pour out much easier. Use a cookie scoop to shape the balls if kids don’t like getting their fingers messy. Any size or shape cookies are fine. Let kids be creative!

Safety Tip:

Until after a baby’s first birthday, avoid giving honey or corn syrup in any form. Honey can cause botulism, a severe foodborne illness in babies. For adults and older children, these spores are harmless.
