These adorable no-bake peanut butter treats will have children and adults buzzing with excitement.
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!
