Peanut Butter Honey Candy Squares
We used to make this candy in zipper bags when my kids were little. It's a great activity for scouts and church groups, and a healthy snack, too! (Watch out for kids with peanut allergies!) These make great "energy bars" with the addition of nuts, seeds, etc. We put Rice Krispies, nuts, sunflower seeds, and granola in them for variety.
