How to make it

  • Combine peanut butter and margarine in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add powdered sugar. Beat until well mixed. Stir in graham cracker crumbs by hand. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of mixture into 1 1/2-inch ovals. Place onto 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 3 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. Dot with chocolate for eyes, if desired.
  • Refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes). Store refrigerated.
  • TIP: Substitute disposable pastry bag for plastic resealable food bag.
  • TIP: If dough is too soft, stir in additional powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

    CUTE! They look tasty too, and would probably be a nice spring-themed snack.
    I've got two nieces and two nephews, so I'll be looking for more kid-friendly stuff!

    These are cute! I'm thinking about using these as a decoration to a peanut butter pie. Peanut butter is definitely a fave in the Buckeye state!
