Incredible Edible Nutty Putty

I was one of the lucky "Tastemakers" to try Planters Peanut Butter from the National Peanut Board. We were asked to come up with a delicious and nutritious snack using ingredients found in most homes. Not being a creative person I turned to MyRecipes and did a peanut butter search and checked a few of the dietary consideration boxes.

This recipe for Incredible Edible Nutty Putty was the first one I came across where I had all of the ingredients on hand. This not only makes a yummy treat but is perfect for a rainy day activity for the little ones. I couldn't get the dried milk to incorporate smoothly but Itty Bitty had no complaints about the slight crunch.

3 ingredients and some imagination and you've got a quick and easy treat for the kids.

MyRecipes.com and Oxmoor House, May 2007
Makes 1 1/2 cups (Serving size = 1 tablespoon)

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey - I used agave nectar.
  • 1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
  • Decorations: colored sugar or candy sprinkles (optional)
And Action:

Stir together peanut butter and honey in a big bowl. Add dry milk, stirring until blended. Spoon a small amount onto a plate. Shape and decorate it anyway you wish before gobbling it up. Store remaining putty in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to 1 week.

PB-honey sandwiches are one of my favorite lunch time treats when I'm actually home to be able to eat them. Bet these would be awesome!

Such a clever mix! Lucky you being in the tastemakers program. I received the mail as well but didn't think it will apply to where I am. Sigh.
