These no-bake, mini peanut butter bumble bees are easy to make and a great treat that everyone, young and old, will enjoy.

Bumble Bees 3I don’t care who you are, these edible little bumble bees are adorable!!!

These are so easy to make! And you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry. My kids use to love making these when they were younger.

You can take these with you to countless events: Birthday parties, Spring-time or Easter dinners, classroom parties, as an appetizer or dessert, for Valentine’s Day, (Bee Mine), for a baby shower, (“Mama to Bee”), etc…

Start by combining peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter together in a bowl. Then, adding crushed graham crackers.

Shape the dough into small 1/2 inch logs and place on wax paper. This will be the body for the bees. You want these bodies to be small and bite size.

Next, melt the chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes, then put into a resealable plastic bag; cut a tiny hole in one corner of the baggie and make 3 stripes on each bee.

Place two almond slivers into each bee for wings. Use a toothpick to poke two holes into each bee for eyes.

That’s it! You’re done! 

Store these little guys in the refrigerator, or you can freeze them for later.

Bumble Bees 1I just can’t emphasize enough how quick and easy these are to make! And they look so cute (have I mentioned that before?). You will impress whoever you decide to share these with.

Allergy Modifications:
