Peanut Butter Granola Balls

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
1 cup crisp rice cereal
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup dried fruit, such as raisins, cherries, or cranberries

In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the honey, peanut butter and butter. Stir until loosened and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cereal, oats and dried fruit.
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.

Alternatives:
Natural peanut butter is a better choice because it does not contain all the extra oils, sugar and salt as the commercial brands.
Try different types of cereal such as Special K or chopped wheat squares.
