After School Snack Time with Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites

There’s nothing like sharing an after school snack with friends. In our house, we are peanut butter freaks! Smooth, Crunchy, Classic, Extra Creamy, it doesn’t matter, just so long as Peanut Butter is involved. Lately the kids have been outside having fun, enjoying the sun. Every day one kid or another are bringing out snacks to share with the group. So this week Trace and I decided to whip up some After School Snacks (done quick and easy) for everyone to enjoy with our recipe for Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites.

Ingredients Needed: Double Batch Recipe

2 cups of Kraft Creamy Peanut Butter

1 cup of honey

2 cups Large flaked Rolled Oats

1 Bag of Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips

Sprinkles Any Color

Pop sticks (any grocery or confection) store


Trace and I started by mixing the peanut butter and honey and rolled oats in a large bowl. He had a ton of fun mixing, though I had to keep his little fingers from tasting every now and then. 

Tip:

After all the ingredients are mixed, chill in fridge for 15 minutes before rolling into snack bites.

 

Next, we rolled 20 1-inch balls. Don’t make them too big. A good way to judge is to use a large Tbsp to scoop enough dough to roll. We placed the balls on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Then we added the sticks to the center of each ball.

Tip:

Do not push the sticks all the way through just part way to keep from coming out the end.

 

Kids love cake pops, which is why we decided to make these Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites, because sticks are just more fun for little fingers to hang onto while enjoying a special treat. Place the balls you’ve rolled into the fridge for 30 min to chill.

While the balls are chilling, Trace helped me melt the chocolate and get the sprinkles ready. We poured the sprinkles into a bowl to make rolling them easier. Then we focused on melting the bag of semi-sweet chocolate for dipping the balls.

Once the balls are chilled, take each one by the stick. Using sticks also makes it easy for little ones to help you dip and roll your snack bites into the chocolate and sprinkles. Trace had the most fun doing this. Once each snack bite is covered in chocolate and sprinkles, place them in the fridge to chill until set.

Suggested serving size is 1 of the bites represented in the above photo  When the bites are ready, simply pull them out and share with friends! These snack bites are best served chilled, and the kids love the creamy peanut butter and honey center mixed with the rolled oats and sprinkled chocolate as a sweet treat for after a long day at school.

I used to think baking was difficult, but it’s tons of fun when you do it with your kids. You can Follow the hashtag #MyKPBsnackbite to join the conversation on Twitter or Facebook and for more fun and easy Peanut Butter Snack Bites recipes please visit www.sticktogether.ca
