Let’s talk about peanut butter again because it’s one of greatest things to ever be invented.
Am I right?
So here we have a no-bake Ritz Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies recipe, compliments of my lovely mother. These are so easy and so good. It’s also a great Christmas activity for kids! Take my word for it.
Ritz Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies Recipe:
- 1 Box of Ritz Crackers
- 1-2 Packages of Almond Bark (chocolate or white)
- Peanut Butter
- Sprinkles/fun decorations
- Parchment paper
- Spread peanut butter between two crackers to make small sandwiches. Make a whole pile or as many as you’d like. Trust me – they go fast!
- In microwave safe bowl, melt almond bark according to packaging instructions.
- Submerge cracker sandwiches into melted almond bark and cover completely.
- Line up almond bark-covered cracker sandwiches on parchment paper to cool and dry.
- Use sprinkles, frosting guns, etc to decorate the cookies to your liking.
And you can even go wild and creative with decorating! I give you creative freedom. I made a batch of plaid ones Saturday morning and I’m happy with how they turned out. They remind me of my school uniform as a kid. 🙂
So, take a crack at these cookies and let me know what you think!
Until next time,
You’re going to be glad you stopped by today after my five-month hiatus! I’m sharing my mom’s world-famous peanut butter ball recipe. Okay, that might be a bit dramatic but these balls are sooooo good. I look forward to making (and eating!) them every Christmas.
And the best part? They’re super straightforward to make and no oven is needed! Add this recipe to your roster for Christmas cookie baking for this year or next.
“Reeses” Peanut Butter Ball Recipe
- 1/2 cup of melted butter
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- 1-2 packages of chocolate almond bark
- Mini cupcake liners
- Mix butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter together in a large bowl.
- Chill in refrigerator.
- Roll dough into balls once chilled
- Melt almond bark in a separate microwave-safe bowl
- Put melted chocolate in the bottom of the mini cupcake liners, add ball, then cover ball in melted chocolate
- Let balls chill
Tip: I like to make the balls on the smaller side because this treat can get very rich once submerged in almond bark.
Tip: The ingredients above make about 1 batch which equals roughly 50 balls – depending on how big you make them.
Tip: It’s naturally a gluten-free cookie recipe! Okay, let me rephrase that – there’s nothing natural about these balls but the ingredients are all gluten-free.
Well, how about that? Let me know what you think of them!
