Pizza Balls

3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 per can)
Pepperoni slices and/or Canadian Bacon slices
Cheese (We used Cheddar)
1 beaten egg
Parmesan cheese
Italian season
Garlic powder
Pizza sauce (I always use spaghetti sauce)

Cut the cheese into 30 squares.  Flatten a biscuit and stack meat-cheese-meat on top.  Pull up the edges of the biscuit.  Line up the rolls in a greased 9x13 pan.  Brush tops with egg.  Sprinkle with Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.  Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.  Use the sauce of dipping the biscuits.  **Next time I think I'll try adding sauce on the inside and adding the spices to both sides of the biscuits, but we really enjoyed these.

Peanut Butter Balls

Syd had a homework assignment where she needed to make food into shapes.  We ended up making these Peanut Butter Balls that my mom use to make me as an after-school snack.  Perfectly easy for a 5 year old to make and shape!

3-4 sq graham crackers                                                1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar                                                 ½ cup instant nonfat dry milk
1 cup peanut butter (preferably crunchy)                       3 TBL water

Crush graham crackers with your fingers onto sheet of waxed paper.  Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly in bowl.  Shape teaspoonful of the mixture into 1-inch balls.  Roll the balls in the graham cracker crumbs until coated.  Chill for 20 minutes.
