A leaning tower of Christmas cookie deliciousness.
Every year, my mom makes these Ritz, peanut butter, and chocolate cookies that I LOVE. (They’re kind of like this.) She makes some with milk chocolate and some with dark chocolate, and then drizzles white chocolate on top to make them look really pretty.
When I saw this idea for no-bake cookies that used cereal, I knew I had to try them with Ritz crackers. They turned out soooo yummy! Anything with chocolate and peanut butter will obviously be delicious, and these are an addictive mix of salty and sweet.
These cookies are perfect for people like me who don’t really like to bake. They only include five ingredients and would be such a unique addition to a Christmas cookie platter. They taste best served cold right out of the freezer or refrigerator.
Do you bake Christmas cookies each year? If so, what are your favorite recipes? I love having traditions, but I also love to try new things. These cookies taste nostalgic to me, but they’re different enough from my mom’s cookies that I think we can have both of them this year!
No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Ritz Cookies
|Prep:||Yield: about 15 cookies||Total:|
These unique and festive no-bake cookies are made with just five ingredients!
- 4 cups Ritz crackers
- 4 large Peanut Butter Cups
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- pinch of sea salt
- Add 3 cups of the Ritz crackers to a food processor and blend until the crackers turn into fine crumbs.
- Add the peanut butter cups, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and sea salt to the crumbs and pulse until well combined.
- Place the last cup of the Ritz crackers in the food processor, then blend until just combined.
- Put the dough on a piece of plastic wrap and form into an 8 to 10 inch roll. Wrap it up in the plastic wrap and stick it in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
- Pour the sprinkles onto a clean surface (I used a baking sheet) and roll the cookies until the outsides are coated in sprinkles.
- Return the cookies to the freezer for at least a half an hour.
- Slice into cookies and serve!
- Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
