Santa’s favorite cookie: almond bark drop cookies! Peanuts, Rice Krispies, and marshmallows coated in white chocolate and peanut butter! No baking required!
I promised you guys my favorite Christmas cookie so here it is!
I made these Almond Bark Drop Cookies last year on Christmas Eve so I didn’t get a chance to blog them.
So obviously they were the first cookie on my list for this year and I have already made them twice!
We made them for my kid’s cookie exchange at school and they were perfect because they’re no-bake so he (a 6 year old) did almost all of the work by himself!
And then I made them again because… they were all gone and I was sad.
How To Make Almond Bark Drop Cookies
Like I said, these are SO simple that a 6 year old can make them.
Start by melting white almond bark with peanut butter in the microwave until it’s all melted and smooth. That gets poured over Rice Krispies cereal, peanuts and marshmallows. You have to stir everything together quickly so the marshmallows don’t melt. And then drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper or parchment paper and let set.
Almond bark sets up quickly so it should only take a few minutes. I like to make these the night before, though, just in case they take a little longer to set up.
Peanut butter and white chocolate is my alltime faaaave combo so I think it’s pretty much the perfect cookie! Plus, they have so much texture between the crunchy cereal and peanuts and the soft marshmallows. They are just so good.
You should definitely make them if you’re looking for one more option for Santa! And this recipe makes a ton so if you’re doing a cookie exchange or making a bunch of cookie tins, it’s perfect!
Where To Find Almond Bark
You can find almond bark in the baking aisle of pretty much any grocery store. Almond bark is a chocolate candy coating so it should be with the chocolate chips and other baking chocolates.
