Ingredients

  • 2

    cups creamy peanut butter

  • 1/2

    cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 2

    cups powdered sugar

  • 3

    cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 1/2

    cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1

    teaspoon shortening

  • Sliced almonds

  • Chow mein noodles

Directions

Combine peanut butter and margarine in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add powdered sugar. Beat until well mixed. Stir in graham cracker crumbs by hand. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of mixture into 1 1/2-inch ovals. Place onto wax paper-lined cookie sheets. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving at 10 second intervals, stirring until mixture is melted and smooth (10 to 30 seconds). Cool slightly (2 to 3 minutes). Place chocolate in small plastic resealable food bag. Cut very small tip from one corner of bag. For each honey bee, pipe 3 chocolate stripes on each oval; insert 2 almond slices in each side for wings. Insert 2 chow mein noodles in head for antenna; insert 1 short chow mein noodle for tail. Dot with chocolate for eyes, if desired. Refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes). Store refrigerated. TIP: Substitute disposable pastry bag for plastic resealable food bag. TIP: If dough is too soft, stir in additional powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.
