Tonight, the annual Perseid Meteor Shower will be at its peak in the night sky!
If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere like we are, you can expect quite the light show starting at around 11:00 PM (your time!). Experts are predicting that as many as 100 meteors can be seen shooting across the night sky per hour. We don’t know about you, but we’ll have our meteor shower arsenal (a soft blanket, time-lapse camera, and a strong cup of coffee) geared up so we can lie down and enjoy the celestial display in the best way possible!
That being said, what would a show be without a snack to munch on?
We’ve put together these super easy-to-make peanut butter pops to enjoy during the shower… no baking required! They’re tasty, conveniently perched on a sick (who doesn’t love snacks on a stick?), and are a much healthier option than their cake pop cousins. Best of all? The whole family will enjoy them, and they look like little meteors, which is an added bonus!
So go ahead and set up your nighttime picnic with the whole crew, and grab the recipe for our Perseid Meteor Peanut Butter Pops below!
- 1. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, honey, milk powder, wheat germ, and vanilla. Mix until ingredients are well distributed.
- 2. Make your meteors! Here, you can do a few methods. We put ours in a cake pop maker (turned off, we just used it to shape), but you can use an ice cream scoop, or just roll them in your hands.
- 3. Using the lollipop sticks, poke holes (not all the way through) in your meteors. Pull out the sticks, dip them in a bit of honey for stickiness, and put back into the holes.
- 4. Place your meteor pops (sticks facing up) on a baking sheet and put in the fridge until you're ready to head out and enjoy the celestial show!
How did your pops turn out? Were they out of this world?? Share your experience with us in the comments, and we hope you enjoy the show!
Health & happiness,
