It’s Monday again, I feel like I write this often!  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We are enjoying my family visiting from AZ this week for their spring break.  We’ll be running around about town, should be fun!

I came up with this fun idea last week that I think you and the kids will just LOVE!  We do peanut butter and jelly combos so much around here, that I love coming up with new PB&J creations.  This is a no brainer recipe that is fun, delicious and one that the kids can get in the kitchen to help with.

This recipe only contains 4 ingredients, so you can whip up these babies in about 10 minutes flat!  Take a peek, I know you’ll enjoy these 🙂

1.  Crush your package of granola bars with a rolling pin.

2.  Add your ingredients to a bowl and mix.

3.  Add powdered sugar, mix and roll your truffles.  That’s it!

Aren’t they pretty?  Who would guess 10 minutes?  Not me 🙂

Peanut Butter and Jelly Crunch Truffles

1/2 Cup creamy or crunchy Peanut Butter

1/2 Cup strawberry preserves, or your favorite jam or jelly

1 package Nature Valley Oats and Honey Crunchy Granola bars (1 package, 2 bars)

3/4 Cup powdered sugar plus 1/4 cup for rolling truffles

1.  Place peanut butter and jelly into a mixing.  Crush granola bars with a rolling pin while still in package.  Open and pour into peanut butter and jelly bowl.  Mix until well combined then slowly stir in 3/4 Cup powdered sugar until combined.  Take 1 inch pieces of mixture and roll into balls.  Roll each ball into remaining 1/4 Cup powdered sugar then place into paper cups. Refrigerate or serve room temperature.
