This recipe comes from Everyday Foods magazine. It is easy enough for little kids to make.

1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp butter

Drop the mixture by the tablespoon into mini paper cupcake or candy liners. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. To store refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Try different types of cereal such as Special K or chopped wheat squares.
