Peanut Butter Balls Recipe

I am always looking for fun activities to do with my kids.  Yesterday we went ice skating, and one of the things I realized while we were there is that I haven’t been doing as many fun activities with my children as I used to when they were younger.  It seems that I am always busy, but not always busy with the things that are most important!  Of course an outing is not always possible, but there are many fun things to do around the house.

To help parents like me who are sometimes short on inspiration, Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner has launched an new web site where you can find and share recipes for fun activities to do with your kids. At cloroxrecipesforfun.com, you and your kids can get ideas for science experiments, cooking recipes and arts and crafts projects.  This will be especially great for this time of year, when going outside is not always an option.  We have had less snow than usually this year, but more mud, so indoor activities are better right  now.

On the Clorox website the activities are broken down into four categories, Wacky Science, Arts and Crafts, Kiddie Cooking and Creative Cooking. I checked out some of the topics, and they sound both fun and easy to do.  For example one of the science activities was the always popular baking soda volcano. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times we do that, my kids still love it!  For arts and crafts there are activities like Ice Paints, Icky Foam and Painted Toast.

Cooking is one of the most enjoyable activities to do with kids, because you get to eat the results. My children enjoy making all kinds of things in the kitchen, but desserts are always the biggest hit. One of their favorite recipes is this one for Peanut Butter Balls. I like it because it is not too unhealthy, and it is very quick and easy to make.  The peanut butter adds protein, so these make a great snack. It would fit perfectly in the Kiddie Cooking category on the Clorox website.

  1. Great idea! The Peanut Butter Balls recipe (without the coconut) can also be used to press into molds to make really cute designs. It works great with silicone molds, I’ll have to try it on stoneware too to see if it comes out cleanly.
