C-3PO Bites – an easy no bake snack with Honey Nut Cheerios, peanut butter, and Reese’s Pieces. These bites are perfect for any Star Wars or just for snacking!
Today is the big day. Do you know what day it is? So many people across the country have been counting down the days until now. Stars Wars: The Force Awakens is officially in theaters!! Do you have tickets? I think theaters all over are pretty much sold out for the first few days. Luckily my husband gets to go today with his work this afternoon. My 10 year old is begging to see it, so we may have some plans over his Christmas break.
To help mark the occasion, I made you C-3PO Bites. Definitely what you need to be snacking on over opening weekend. I am partnering with General Mills Cereal to bring you this fun snack – perfect for Star Wars fans across the galaxy. You may have noticed Star Wars themed packaging in the cereal aisle. Inside these specially marked boxes for a limited time, you’ll find exciting Star Wars-themed premiums, like the Droid Viewers that are available now. Keep an eye out, because in January select Star Wars cereal boxes will contain exclusive Collectible Decals that glow in the dark and feature BB-8, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and you guessed it, C-3PO! Watch for them in specially marked boxes of Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, MultiGrain Cheerios and Cookie Crisp.
These C-3PO Bites are super easy to make and perfect for any Star Wars themed party you are going to. Or really just an after school snack, a lunch box treat, or really just any time! Just a few minutes and no oven required! I used Honey Nut Cheerios for their golden yellow color and then picked out the yellow Reese’s pieces from the bag to make them C-3PO approved. My husband and son at these so quickly, I had to make a second batch right away. These bites are definitely addicting and an easy snack.
And if you want to throw an epic party, you will also need this Mini Trix Jedi Snack Mix with Lightsaber Pretzels from Cravings of a Lunatic. So excited to be joining forces with Kim and sharing these Star Wars snacks with you today.
- 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Reese’s pieces candy
In a bowl mix together peanut butter, honey, and vanilla until smooth. Add in Honey Nut Cheerios and Reese’s Pieces. Mix until everything is evenly coated.
Set bowl in fridge for 30 minutes.
Using slightly damp hands, roll into about 1 inch balls, placing on a baking sheet. Don’t let your hands get dry or they will get sticky, and you will not be able to roll into balls.
Place baking sheet in the fridge for 2-3 hours until balls are firm.
Store in an air tight container.
