Peanut Butter Granola Bites

I was looking for a quick little snack the other night and came across this recipe.
It sounded perfect. Peanut Butter, oats, rice krispies, dried fruit! yum!
These little bites are so good you are going to want to double the batch, I promise you will eat them all in no time. I ate all mine now I need to make some more!

What you need,

1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp butter
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup dried fruit, I used dried cranberries but raisins or chopped dried apricots would be super tasty... kinda thinking some dried cherries and some dark chocolate chips would be amazing!

Melt the butter, peanut butter and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until just melted together. Pour over the cereal, oats and dried fruit. stir to coat.
Drop by the teaspoon into little mini cupcake liners on a sheet pan, you should get about 25. Put them in the fridge to harden up a bit.

You can store them in an airtight container for up to a week but seriously these wont' last the day!

A perfect snack! OK gotta go make another batch now...
