Peanut Butter Doo-Dads
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/3cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup cereal, such as toasted oats or puffed rice
1. In frying pan over medium heat, stir peanut butter with wooden spoon for about 1 minute, or until very soft. Take pan off stove and put on cutting board or kitchen towel. (An adult might need to help.) Dump in chocolate chips. Stir until soft and a little melted.
2. Measure cereal and dump in. Mix slowly until cereal is coated and gooey. Scoop spoonfuls of batter into lumps onto large plate. Refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze for 15 minutes. Time to eat!
