Honey Bee Mines

Sure, Winnie the Pooh’s affinity for honey often proved a nuisance to Rabbit and the other residents of the Hundred-Acre Wood. Still, who could blame him for wanting his fill of such a tempting treat? Made with honey and peanut butter, and striped with chocolate, these sweets are truly the bee’s knees.

How To Make It
  • 1

    Combine the peanut butter, butter, honey, and crushed crisped rice cereal in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed.

  • 2

    Shape teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and chill them until firm.

  • 3

    Measure the chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl and heat them in the microwave for 15-second intervals, until they are melted (note: they won't lose their shape). Stir the chocolate with a wooden spoon until smooth.

  • 4

    Drizzle chocolate stripes over the honey balls.

  • 5

    For bee wings, set two almond slivers on top of each honey ball, using a dab of chocolate to secure them and fanning them toward the sides just a bit. Makes about 2 dozen.
