Christmas Crispies

Don’t you just love all the decadent goodies at Christmas time? I do. Probably more than I should. But, hey, that’s what New Year’s is for, right? No counting calories until January 1. It’s a Christmas law. Or should be.

My hubby always buys Christmas M&Ms to fill my candy bowl and, of course, I have to have the Christmas-wrapped Dove dark chocolates on hand.

Some of my favorite things to bake at Christmas include snickerdoodles, butter toffee, and shortbread. But the one goody that gets made every year without fail are my Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispies. Super easy to make and scrumptious to eat.

I hope that you and your family had a marvelous Christmas holiday whether together in person or in spirit. Keep enjoying those leftover goodies, and go ahead and make a few more. Don’t forget . . . calories don’t count until January 1!

  1. thanks for sharing your recipe. this looks so yummy. I can remember my mom using corn syrup in place of white sugar in some of her recipes. Yummm Hope you had a fabulous Christmas.

  2. Thank you for sharing your delicious sounding and looking recipe. May you and your family have a Very Happy and Blessed New Year.

  3. Karen those sound wonderful! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I don’t think we should count calories until after Valentine’s Day, though. That would be even better! LOL Hope your holidays are wonderful!

  4. These are quick and easy. They sound like something most would enjoy, too. I would think eliminating the peanut butter for those who have peanut allergies would not be a problem. Thankfully we do not have a problem, but I never bring anything with nuts or nut butters when we do potlucks or snacks for school or meetings. Too many people have allergies.
    As for the calories, I was doing so well until Halloween, then on came the pounds. I like Cheryl’s idea of not counting calories until after Valentine’s Day, but that is so counter productive.
    Have a fun New Year’s Day celebration and a Wonderful New Year.
