I first made these peanut butter balls in the 70s when my girls were toddlers. Now I make them for my grandchildren. The recipe was in Feed Me, I Am Yours (70s edition), a book by Vicki Lansky.

    Note: Two tablespoons of peanut butter is a serving size for adults. Kids should be taught to eat a reasonable amount of this healthy snack. Also, children under one year should not eat honey.
