They come together so quickly and easily that it’s easy to get the whole family involved in the action, and it shows! There were some really awesome entries. Congratulations to Maria Medeiros, Debbie Flynn, Rebecca Hart and Shanaz Allia, the winners from the Make It Yours photo contest!

When I crafted my Chocolate Popcorn and Pretzel Peanut Butter Snack Bites recipe last month, hubs and I used the project to get reconnected in a place where he normally doesn’t butt in. I really enjoyed having him actively helping me try to create a new recipe! It was great to just spend some private time, just the two of us, doing something together like we used to do before we had our kid.
Speaking of way-back things like life before kids, I have loved pistachios since pretty much forever. Among my earliest memories, I can remember sitting in a stroller (at aged two or three) eating pistachio ice cream. I think that’s why I’ve always loved the beautiful green color of the nut, and I’ll always associate green and pistachios with happiness. Since peanut butter and nuts will likely always be an exclusive and rare treat for just hubs and I, I don’t eat them as much as I used to. But when we do indulge, we go decadent, just like with these Honey and Pistachio-Peanut Butter Snack Bites!
- 1/2 cup Kraft Peanut Butter with Honey
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 cup large flake rolled oats
- 1/2 cup chopped pistachios
- Mix peanut butter, honey and cinnamon in medium bowl until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Refrigerate 30 min.
- Roll into 20 (1-inch) balls, using about 2 Tbsp. for each
- These Honey and Pistachio-Peanut Butter Snack Bites can be pre-prepared and refrigerated up to 1 week before serving. Use a scoop to portion the peanut butter mixture for regular-sized balls.
