No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls

You can add whatever you want to the recipe – nutella, dried fruit, mini chocolate chips, almond butter, wheat germ, etc. You can play with the portions and add a little more or a little less of any of the ingredients – whatever suits you and your child’s taste. This recipe made about 30 small (almost bite sized) balls. And they were eaten up (by a preschool class) in a flash!
