No Bake Quick Energy Snacks

My mom used to make these delicious little treats for me when I was younger, and I absolutely LOVE them.  I recently made them for The Littlest Apple, and he loves them too!  From my super picky eater, that’s saying something!  These sweet treats are super easy to throw together, and since there is no baking or cooking involved, this is a great opportunity to let your kids help out.  The Littlest Apple helps me smash the graham crackers (I think that’s his favorite part!) , measure the ingredients, stir them together, and roll the snacks in the graham cracker crumbs.   If you’re dealing with peanut allergies, I imagine you could substitute almond butter or other nut butters.

Quick Energy Snacks

from cooks.com

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 graham crackers
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 c. crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. instant non-fat dry milk  (Picky Apple note: When I don’t have powdered milk on hand, I just leave it out!)
  • 3 tbsp. water

Crush crackers in a zip-top bag. Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly in bowl. Shape teaspoonfuls of the mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the graham crackers. Arrange the coated balls on ungreased cookie sheet or plate and refrigerate 20 minutes or until firm.
