Categories: Candies, Kids

1 c Peanut butter 1 c Light corn syrup 1 1/2 c Dry powdered milk 1 1/2 c Sifted confectioners sugar 1 lg Bowl and a wooden spoon Paper plates and pencils Help the children measure the peanut butter, corn syrup, dry powdered milk, and confectioners sugar into the large bowl. They can take turns stirring with the wooden spoon until everything is mixed and a stiff dough forms. Give everyone a paper plate and a pencil. Each child should write his or her name on the bottom of the plate. Make sure they hold their pencils correctly and use uppercase and lower case letters. Put a portion of dough on each plate. The children can shape it into bite-sized balls by pinching off pieces and rolling them between their hands. Smaller children who cannot make balls can make snakes. Then they can cut the snakes into segments (with an adults help) to make bite-sized pieces. Leave the peanut butter balls on the children's plates and refrigerate them until firm, about 1 hour.
