No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
Chocolate almond bark
Spread peanut butter on a cracker and top with a second cracker. Melt the almond bark in the microwave and then dip crackers in the melted almond bark. Lay on wax paper.
Try spreading different things that sound good on the crackers like marshmallow fluff, Nutella, or even a combination of these.
Years ago when food was a lot more expensive and not nearly as plentiful, most people didn’t waste anything. People scraped every drop from the bowl and even 1-2 Tablespoons of leftovers were saved to use in some way, including leftover frosting. Often I will decorate something and have just a tiny bit of frosting remaining. This recipe is the perfect answer to that dilemma because it only needs a tiny bit of frosting.
Spread any frosting on soda crackers for a treat the kids will love. These are so good you may find yourself opening a can of frosting just so you can make some. It is a great inexpensive snack to for when all those neighborhood kids are at your house and you need something fast and easy.
Butter and Jam Crackers
Spread regular soda crackers with a thin layer of butter. Then add your favorite jelly or jam.
I love doing this all the time. These aren’t only good in the summer. They’re also great with chili or soup in the winter. It is that salty, sweet taste we like so much. I have used peanut butter to in place of the butter – with or without the jam. It is a lifesaver when you are out of bread to add these to a meal.
Peanut Butter and White Corn Syrup
This is one of our favorites. Like the others, it is so good with chili or soup and I often eat this combination for my lunch.
Mix equal parts peanut butter and white corn syrup. Then spread on soda crackers. Sometimes, I use a little less syrup than peanut butter.
