  • 1 cup diced dried apple
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1½ cups creamy peanut butter
  • 5¼ cups Special K cereal


  1. Toss apples with lemon juice and water and set aside to rehydrate for 5 minutes. Then pat off excess liquid with a paper towel. Heat sugar, corn syrup and cinnamon in a large pan on medium high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Turn off heat and stir in peanut butter. Add apples and cereal and mix until well coated. Drop by large blobs onto wax paper and shape into balls. After the the balls have set for a few minutes, place a stick down through the middle. Wait another 20-30 minutes before serving. Decorate with ribbons and/or wrap in cellophane, if giving as gifts. But save at least one for yourself!
