Easy Peanut Butter Balls {VIDEO}

Peanut butter balls

If your kiddo’s are anything like my girl, then they love helping out in the kitchen any way that they can. Even though most of the time, her helping me is a little unpractical and sometimes mostly gets in my way, I still like to include her any way that I can.

Most if the time the recipes we end up making are boxed brownies or a boxed cake (for simplicity sake). Cake after cake, and brownie after brownie however is a little too much sugar for an already hyperactive 3 year old to be consuming just to get some mommy time.

One of her favorite homemade goodies that is way better for you than cake is peanut butter balls. Its just a few ingredients, easy to make, and most importantly to me, its easy to clean up. LOL

It is really the cutest thing to see her pull a chair up to the counter with her adorable apron on and insist on doing everything herself. I just pass her the correct measuring cups for the different ingredients so she gets the proper amount of each thing in her mixing bowl.

Another reason these are a favorite in my house is because I struggle in the morning to eat breakfast. I have no problem whipping up some eggs and sausage for my family, but when it comes to me I just don’t feel hungry enough to stomach food.

So as long as I can fit a few of these in with my morning coffee, I feel like i’m actually getting some protein to start my day right.

This is a great recipe to double or even triple the recipe and have yummy snacks the kids can just grab from the fridge for the week. This recipe hold up pretty well to the general messiness of children. It isn’t very sticky, and it doesn’t crumble. They love the sweetness, and I love the fact that it’s not a brownie, haha.
