No bake recipes are my favourite ones to make with the kids because the term “no-bake” usually indicates that it’s fairly easy, not that messy and something that the kids can really get into and have fun with. The new Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites recipe is all three things, but it also had an added element of fun; you get to customize it any way you like!
When it came time to come up with a delicious twist on these little peanut butter bites of heaven, I thought about our family and what we like to do. The very first thing that came to mind was movies! Then my mind wandered further, to my favourite snack at the movie theatre which is buttered popcorn and peanut M&M’s. Together. Have you ever tried this? I’ll warn you now that it will replace your usual popcorn at the theater. Sweet and salty bliss, there’s nothing better!
There are many different types of Kraft Peanut Butter out, but since I wanted to make a new recipe riffing on my favourite treat, I used the Kraft Peanut Butter with Chocolate.
I also had a small helper that day, who saw the Kraft Peanut Butter with Chocolate and simply had to know what I was making.
Is this kid mine or what?
This took us a mere 5 minutes to make together. I love recipes that help my kid’s confidence in the kitchen and while you may know that these recipes are easy, the kids don’t. The feeling of accomplishment from simply mixing something and helping you roll it into balls to refrigerate is priceless, in my opinion. No bake recipes are the best way to get your children started in the kitchen.
The fun part of developing these Peanut Butter Snack Bites is that I get to show you how easy they are to make and as per usual, you get a chance to win something!

So after seeing my take on the Kraft Peanut Butter Snack Bites recipe, what would YOU put in yours?
Happy no-baking everyone!
- 1/2 cup Kraft Peanut Butter with Chocolate
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 cup large flake rolled oats
- 1 cup buttered popcorn microwave works the best
- 1/4 cup salted peanuts
- Mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl until blended. Don't' worry about smashing the popcorn, it needs to be crunched up while mixing so that the dough sticks together.
- Roll into 20 (1-inch) balls, using about 2 Tbsp. for each. Top with a piece of popcorn if wanted.
- Chill for 20 to 30 min.
- Serve and enjoy as a snack!
