Peanut Butter Honey Bees


      2 c  creamy peanut butter

    1/2 c  land o lakes® margarine


      2 c  powdered sugar

      3 c  graham cracker crumbs

    1/2 c  semi-sweet real chocolate


      1 t  shortening


           chow mein noodles

Combine peanut butter and margarine in large mixer bowl. Beat at

medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Add

powdered sugar; reduce speed to low. Beat until well mixed (1 to 2

minutes). Stir in graham cracker crumbs by hand. Shape rounded

teaspoonfuls of mixture into 1 1/2-inch ovals. Place on wax paper-lined

cookie sheets.


Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving at 10

second intervals, stirring until mixture is melted and smooth (10 to 30

seconds). Cool slightly (2 to 3 minutes). Place chocolate in small

plastic resealable food bag. Cut very small tip from one corner of bag.

For each honey bee, pipe three chocolate stripes on each oval; insert 2

almond slices in each side for wings. Insert 2 chow mein noodles in

head for antenna; insert 1 short chow mein noodle for tail. Make small

chocolate dots for eyes, if desired.


Refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes). Store refrigerated.


TIPS: Substitute disposable pastry bag for plastic resealable food bag.


If dough is too soft, stir in additional powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon

at a time, until desired consistency.
