No bake cookies might be my favorite kind of cookies to make, and for just that reason… you don’t have to bake them! That means you don’t have to heat up the house if it’s a warm summer day, and the whole process only takes about 15 minutes. These particular cookies are a new take on the classic chocolate version, made with lots of peanut butter and some Rice Krispies for a bit of crunch. Let’s get started!
Here’s what you’ll need for your peanut butter crisp no bake cookies:
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 8 tablespoons of butter (1 stick)
- 1/2 cup of whole milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
- 1 1/2 cups of Rice Krispies
- Dash of salt
Begin by pouring the sugar, butter and milk into a medium saucepan. Stir the milk and sugar together and cut the butter up into small pieces so it melts quicker.
Turn the heat to medium high and stir constantly until the mixture begins to boil rapidly. Set a timer for two minutes and thirty seconds and continue stirring constantly. Once you hit the two and a half minute mark, remove the pan from the heat.
Stir in the peanut butter, salt and vanilla. Stir until thoroughly combined.
