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, Springtime 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, add 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 sliced almonds 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.
