Holiday Fun with Honey Maid and Skippy

One of my favorite {and least favorite} things about the holidays is how many delicious desserts there are at every get-together. Holiday recipes like cookies, cakes, brownies, and of course homemade candies are always such a delicious treat! Hubby and I, as well as our extended family, particularly love peanut butter and chocolate, so my job is always to make Peanut Butter Truffles. Here’s a quick and easy recipe I think you’ll enjoy!

Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Truffles


– 2 cups Skippy peanut butter
– 1/2 cup crushed Honey Maid graham crackers
– 1/2 cup softened butter
– 3 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
– 2 bags of candy melts in your choice of milk, dark, and/or white chocolate
– sprinkles {optional}


I was able to get all the supplies I needed at my local Walmart.


In a large bowl,beat the peanut butter and butter together until blended. Gradually mix in confectioners’ sugar and stir until smooth. Stir in crushed graham crackers. Shape into balls and refrigerate until chilled.

These are actually really fun to make as a family…there are lots of jobs for little hands to do! First, I had Little Crafter crush the graham crackers with a rolling pin {I love this photo even though it’s a little blurry because Fuzzy is totally saying, “What are you doing and can I eat it?”}


LC also had a blast getting his hands in the bowl to mix the ingredients together and shaping the mixture into balls. He was a huge help and we had so much fun working together!


Place your candy melts in a saucepan or in the microwave and melt as directed on the package. Dip the balls into the melted chocolate until coated and place on a wax-lined baking sheet. Let stand until chocolate hardens. If desired, drizzle another type of melted chocolate on top and/or add sprinkles for decoration.

These are so delicious and so rich! Some of our family members like them best with dark chocolate {like me!} while others prefer milk chocolate, so I make a variety. Either way, it’s what’s inside that really counts!

Peanut Butter Graham Cracker TrufflesOur family loves these tasty treats! Hubby says I should make them year-round, but the trouble is, if I make them I want to eat them…ALL of them! In the meantime, since the recipe only calls for 2 cups of Skippy and 1/2 cup of the Honey Maid graham crackers, we have to find something to do with what’s left over, right?


Little Crafter decided to help by snacking on graham crackers while he worked, but there were still lots more in the box. Which seems to me like the perfect excuse to make holiday graham cracker houses!

Holiday House

You’ll need:

– Skippy Peanut Butter
– Honey Maid Graham Crackers
– assorted candies
– a knife
– aluminum foil
– a piece of cardboard {we used a small box turned upside down}

Step 1: Cover a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil. This will be the “base” your house sits on.

Step 2: Use peanut butter to “glue” four graham crackers together to be the walls of the house. You can break the crackers into smaller pieces or use them as is, depending on the size and shape you want your house to be.


Step 3: Add a graham cracker roof.


Step 3: Add detail and decoration using assorted candies and peanut butter.


This is such a fun family activity to do together. Little Crafter always looks forward to decorating a holiday house, and then gets excited to show it off to everyone who comes to visit! The creative possibilities are endless…little ones can decorate in any way they like and just have fun playing with food. Food plus art, what could be better?
