Sweet Kid-Friendly Treats

I started making these sweet treats when Ryan and I were first dating. They’ve evolved into one of our family favorites! Super easy and even fun to make with the kids!
I normally keep a bunch in the fridge and by the end of the week we’ll be ready to make more.
Butter Balls
(I don’t know why we call them this because
there is no butter in the recipe, but anyways….)
20 small marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey
1 ½ – 2 cups dry milk
1 cup (or more) of topping for rolling

1.    Mix the peanut butter, honey, and dry milk in a bowl to create a dough-like mixture. The dough should be somewhat dry so when you roll it in your hands it should stick together to form a ball. If the dough is too moist, add more dry milk.
2.    Scoop a tablespoon of mix and flatten with your fingers. Place a marshmallow in the middle and roll the dough around the marshmallow.
3.    Roll the ball through your topping (we used crushed heath bar – see below for topping ideas)
4.    Line all the butter balls on a plate or in a container and refrigerator for 1 hour. They will last in the fridge for at least a week.
YUMMY TOPPING IDEAS// heath bar, crushed mini M&M’s, chopped peanuts, chopped cashews, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, chocolate shavings

VARIATIONS// you can also use other nut butters, you just need to adjust the dry milk accordingly. The nut butter and honey should always remain proportional.
