Cookie Recipe #153 - No-Bake Peanutty Cookies
This is the perfect cookie for a hot summer day. No oven is needed to achieve the great peanut and chocolate experience.
Ingredients: 2 cups creamy or crunchy peanut butter, 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I used half chocolate graham cracker crumbs), 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup light or dark corn syrup, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted: for sprinkling: colored sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles or chopped peanuts.
Instructions: In large bowl, combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar and corn syrup. Mix until smooth. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper-lined pans. Melt chocolate chips in microwave until smooth when stirred. Drizzle chocolate over each cookie then top with sprinkles or chopped peanuts. Place in refrigerator until chocolate hardens.
Store covered in refrigerator. Makes 5 dozen balls.
