No Bake Graham Cracker Crumb Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Graham Chocolate Peanut Butter CookiesThe following no bake cookie recipe is just as easy to make as any bake oatmeal cookies. The most work that will be done with this no bake cookie recipe is crushing the graham crackers if you prefer to use whole graham crackers over the graham cracker crumbs. This recipe is one my mother made when we were kids.

No Bake Graham Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

If you are using whole graham crackers, crush 14 graham crackers to get one cup of graham finely crushed cracker crumbs. Place the graham crackers into a quart size Ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush. (Here’s some vacuum sealers you may like!)

In a sauce pan (we recommend Copper Chef Set or All-Clad Cookware), combine the following over a low to medium heat stirring until you have melted the ingredients.

  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

Once you melt the ingredients, remove from heat. Stir in the one cup of fine graham cracker crumbs. Spread the cookie mixture into an 8 by 8-inch square pan.

Chill until the hardened. Once the mixture has hardened, cut into 36 squares. Once you cut the squares, remove from the pan and place on a plate or platter for serving.

TIPS For Substitutions

Nut Allergies

For those who are allergic to nuts, omit the peanut butter and increase the graham crackers by a quarter cup.

When using Nutella, you will need to test the amount needed for this substitution because I haven’t tried it with this ingredient.

Other Chips

You can substitute cherry, butterscotch, or any other flavored chips in place of the chocolate chips. Also, if you wish to make these no bake graham chocolate chip cookies with more than one kind of chip, just make sure the chips equal one cup.

This is just one form of no bake cookies. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have over the years. We also love making fresh pizzelles in our pizzelle makers!
