My friend Wendy makes these ADORABLE little treats that I just HAD to share with you.

 

Peanut Butter Bee’s

She got this recipe from a friend several years ago and made the bees for her niece’s 8th birthday as a surprise and they went over big time! She also made them into bunnies by using the almonds as ears instead of wings. The bunnies make an adorable Easter treat.

Wendy doubles the recipe because everyone loves them!

*Wendy uses black gel icing, but you could also melt chocolate to pipe stripes and eyes.

    These will “bee” so cute for my granddaughter’s Winnie the Pooh birthday party. Is it Chinese noodles that you used for the antennae and stinger?

    I made these years ago and they crumbled when I tried to put the almonds in. Never made again as they were a waste of time
