Find the full recipe and directions below, or gather your ingredients and push play! Either way, these bees will make your (and everyone else’s) day hum with “Mmmms” and “Ahhhs.”
No-Bake Peanut Butter Honeybees
From Taste of Home’s 1999 Quick-Cooking Annual Recipes. Makes four dozen.
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 12 squares)
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Plastic sandwich bag for chocolate striping
1. In a bowl, cream peanut butter, butter, and sugar until smooth. Add crumbs and mix well.
2. Shape teaspoonfulls of dough into 1-1/4-inch ovals, and place on a baking sheet or tray.
3. Place chocolate in a small, microwave safe bowl; microwave on high for 1 minute or until melted. Transfer melted chocolate to plastic sandwich bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag to create your piping tool.
4. Pipe stripes (three’s a charm!) on each bee.
5. Insert two almonds into each bee for wings.
6. Use a toothpick to insert to poke holes for the eyes.
7. Store in the refrigerator, or land them to their final destination!
Even if you’re a busy bee, these are so simple that you’ll never have to arrive empty handed at a bbq or potluck again! And for extra cool points, when someone asks how to make them, show off the snazzy stop-motion cooking video. You can take credit for it, we won’t tell. :)
