Organic Peanut Butter Granola Bites with Dried Cherries!

A perfect healthy little snack...compliments of Martha!
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup crisp rice cereal (I used brown rice krispies sold at whole foods but rice krispies will work fine)
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup dried fruit (I used dried cherries, cranberries & have used apricots too)

In a small saucepan over medium, heat honey, peanut butter, and butter. Stir until loosened and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cereal, oats, and dried fruit.
Drop mixture by the tablespoon into mini paper cupcake or candy liners. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. To store, refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week.

(Note: these do hold together loosely but will never stick together completely)
