These No Bake Peanut Butter Crisp Balls are one of my favorite easy cookie recipes.
My family loves anything with chocolate and peanut butter. So, it’s no wonder that I can’t keep these No Bake Peanut Butter Crisp Balls in the house. As soon as I make a batch they start disappearing at an alarming rate.
These cookies remind me a lot of Buckeyes – the peanut balls that are dipped in chocolate. The only difference is, these have a crispy component.
This easy cookie recipe is a cinch to make. And, the best part is, kids can help make them. My son and I love to make these together.
