Wookie Cookies {Free Printable}

When the kind folks at Big G sent me a full set of the Star Wars pens and a few boxes of cereal, I knew two things… 1) that the littles (and their daddy) would be over the moon excited and 2) that it was a perfect candidate for one of Scout’s daily treats!

As expected, they were mad for the pens.  There are eight in the set and we did a “pen draft” to divide them up for the day.  (We also do “room drafts”, “car drafts”, “ball drafts”, etc. on a daily basis.) These fun collectible pens can be found in specially marked boxes of General Mills cereal through the end of the year.
We decided over breakfast to make some sort of cereal treat to share with their little friends.  One quick internet search later and we were mixing up Six Sister’s Stuff Peanut Butter Puff Balls with the Reese’s Puffs Cereal!!  They are no bake, come together in a flash, and are perfect for cooking with helpers.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Puff Balls
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
16 oz. jar creamy peanut butter
6 cups Reese’s Puffs cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the whole container of peanut butter. Mix well.
Add cereal to a large bowl. Pour warm peanut butter mixture over cereal and mix well, making sure to coat all of the puffs.
Scoop out and form into 1-2 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Put the chocolate chips in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.

The treats are brown and strangely shaped – both of which were oddly perfect for our “Wookie Cookies”.  I made tags with the littles’ input and we bagged them up to be delivered this morning!
