After School Snacks

Always on the look out for good snacks for the kids, I ran across these recipes in a newspaper and have finally tried them.  They were a hit with kids and husband alike.  They love the taste and I can feel good about them eating them.

Nutty Buddies (pictured)
1/2 cup crushed pretzels
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1 Tbsp honey
Mix half the pretzels, the chocolate chips, peanut butter, dry milk and honey in a bowl with hands or fork.  Form 1" ball and roll in remaining crushed pretzels.

Coconut Balls
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup Rice Krispies
2 Tbsp nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup coconut
Mix peanut butter, honey, cereal, and milk.  Roll into 1" balls and roll in coconut.

PBJ Balls
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup Rice Krispies
