Today is National Peanut Butter Cookie day. And where it might be too late (and hopefully too darn hot) for baking, these no bake cookies are sure to be the hit of any event. From Father’s Day (my dad LOVES his peanut butter) to 4th of July BBQ’s to just your everyday peanut butter celebration day, they are easy to make (your kids can help, or your cats if you don’t have kids) can probably be made with what you have already in your pantry, and disappear quickly.
These are low sugar but the sugar can easily be increased to up to 2x to appease the sweet tooths out there. And sugar substitutes are sure to work as well.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal like Rice Crispies or Chex.
- 1 cup crushed pretzel sticks
In a large bowl mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar together till well combined. Add the chocolate chips and crispy rice cereal and also mix till well combined.
Roll the peanut butter mixture into 1″ balls and then roll in the crushed pretzels to coat.
Chill for 1 hour.
