Sweet Tooth Sweeties
Now, this one put smiles on my employees' faces when they tested it for me - it definitely put one on mine, too!
1/2 cup Peter Pan Reduced Fat Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup granular Splenda
3 cup (3 ounces) Rice Krispies cereal
1/4 cup (1 ounce) mini chocolate chips
In a large saucepan, combine peanut butter, maple syrup, marshmallows and Splenda. Cook over medium heat until mixture is melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in Rice Krispies. Add chocolate chips. Mix gently just to combine. Lightly spray hands with butter flavored cooking spray, then form mixture into 24 ( 1 1/2 inch) balls. Store in a covered container.
