Cooking With Kids: Easy Peanut Butter Balls

Cooking With Kids: Easy Peanut Butter Balls

Hosting a Kids Holiday Cookie Swap? These Easy Peanut Butter Balls are sure to be a hit!  No baking required.  I love to bake with my kids as I’m sure most of you do too.  Baking with kids is a fun way to get the little ones in the kitchen and teach basic skills like measuring, math and of course making a mess and cleaning it all up. So why not bake a batch of your kid’s favorite cookies together?
