Great no-bake treat. DH's mom taught him to make these when he was but a lad. Serve with a tall glass of milk.
- Mix all ingredients until evenly combined with clean hands or a silicone spoon.
- Form into 1-inch balls. Remember these are no bake!
- Serve immediately if able, but can be stored in an airtight container for later.
- Glass of milk required for a delicious treat.
- It is recommended that children under two not be served honey.
This was exactly what I was looking for! I did add mini chocolate chips to the recipe. I used local wildflower honey. My son loved it, I love it and hubby liked the sweetness. I think I will play with this alittle more and try some of the suggestions like the cinnamon and such. Thanks so much for posting this!
I got this recipe, originally, off of a Sunday School website. It was a craft for the kids to make "Pharohs Bricks" with or without the straw (oats, in this case). It went over SO well, that I had to find a proper recipe and keep it. These are really fantastic tasting - though, we used almond butter. We had no "grainy" problems and our powdered milk WAS grainy. The balls changed after an hour and solidified better. Perhaps, if you left them, untouched,, for an hour, they would be PERFECT for consistency and flavors melding/grain breaking down. Nonetheless, we loved them! YUM!
I was wondering why the honey milk balls I prepared were grainy. I think that
maybe it was because the milk powder I used was not powdery but more
like the texture of cornmeal. Regardless, these are easy to make although ~Tasty~ didn't like them. Again, I think it was a texture thing and not the fault of the recipe. I slightly warmed the honey to make it easier to mix with the other ingredients. I used a small cookie scoop to portion out the dough, then rolled the honey-milk balls in oiled hands. Placed them in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. Very easily adaptable for substituting other seed or nut butters. I added a small amount of ground cinnamon and vanilla powder-about 1/4 teaspoon of each. Reviewed for Veg Tag/October.
