I’m an obsessive Holiday Cookie maker.
It’s the one time of the year that I throw all caution (and calorie counting) to the wind and make every kind of cookie or treat my family desires. In fact, on December 1st, we sat down and had a family baking and strategy session (you’ll understand why I said strategy here in a second) and came up with 11 different kinds of cookies we wanted to make this year.
It’s a strategy because of the math that looks like this…
11 types of cookies x 3 dozen per type of cookie = 396 cookies
At the top of everyone’s the list, White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy No-Bake Cookies.
(In all fairness, the actual recipe is called Vinny’s Fudge. But “Vinny” isn’t a very good descriptor in the blog world, so hence my long title. Plus, I have no idea who Vinny is…)
But Vinny, is his/her wisdom, put white chocolate, Planters Creamy Peanut Butter, dry-roasted peanuts, puffed rice cereal, and marshmallows together. And by some act of amazingness, maybe a chemical reaction that happens when all of these ingredients meet, they create little bits of awesomeness that are highly addictive.
(Like so addictive that I had to get up from my computer and go eat one while working on this post.)
These are very kid-friendly to make because you only have to warm up the white chocolate in the microwave and everything else is dump, mix, and drop.
And you might want to double up on this recipe if you’ve never had it before, because the first batch may be gone 24 hours after making. #justsayin Good thing there are up to $20 in Kraft Printable Coupons available on Target.com. Just a way for Kraft to give you a little help for the holidays while making Christmas Cookies or your Christmas Dinner.
