Mini Peanut Butter Bumble Bees

Thanks for sharing!

No-bake, mini peanut butter bumble bees are a tasty treat that everyone, young and old, will enjoy. They require only 6 ingredients and are ridiculously easy to make.  A fun little activity/treat for kids to make during a sleepover, during the holidays, at a pool or tea party, or whenever you hear the kids say, “I’m bored!”

Bumble Bees 3These totally edible little bumble bees are adorable 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.

Allergy Modifications:

If you have food allergies, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this fun snack! This recipe can easily be modified.

Gluten Intolerance: Use Gluten Free Graham Crackers.

Peanut Allergy: Substitute with almond butter or cashew butter.
