Peanut Butter Granola Balls

Here’s one of my all-time favorite snacks and, of course, it has one of my favorite ingredients – peanut butter! These Peanut Butter Granola Balls are easy to make and only take a few ingredients – which I’ll bet you already have in your pantry. You will need oats, rice crispy cereal, honey, peanut butter, butter, dried cranberries and chocolate chips. That’s it!

Peanut Butter Granola Balls
Makes 24 granola balls

1/3 cup honey
¼ cup natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup crisp rice cereal
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup chocolate chips

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, oats, and dried cranberries. Let the mixture cool for about two minutes and stir in the chocolate chips.

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.
