These make-ahead bites are the perfect breakfast or afternoon snack. On top of being cute and easy to make, they’re super customizable! You can use any cereal you have on hand, and if you can’t have peanut butter in your house, sunflower butter or a similar alternative will work just as well!

6. Drop portions onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (or into cupcake liners). Allow them to set. They should harden up enough to pick them up within half an hour, but it takes a few hours for them to be more firm.

7. Enjoy!

Note: Microwaving times vary depending on the microwave. Make sure the honey is boiling, or else it won't set. But also be careful not to burn it. Alternatively, you can bring the mixture to a boil on the stove over medium-low heat and let it simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
