These are perfect to add to your holiday cookie trays, to help fill up those little gift tins, and it makes enough to fill up a large Christmas platter for guests or sit around in candy dishes.

I used to make cookies for days, these are so much easier because there’s no baking. No shoving hot cookie sheets in the freezer to cool down quickly so the next batch doesn’t burn!

YES, I’m sure my freezer wasn’t happy with me, but I do remember doing that trying to get all the cookies done to take to work the next day. And then you must have enough for the kids to give to their teachers, the mail man.. neighbors, pretty much everyone! You know how crazy it gets.

Planning ahead wasn’t one of my strong points when my kids were young and money was short.

These come together in very little time and you can make them ahead. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Balls also keep for days in the fridge, if you can hide them good enough that is.

Now if you have a handy dandy cookie scoop it’s way less messy, you could also use 2 teaspoons and put a little butter on your hands to roll.

I found it helps to chill the mixture at least 30 minutes, before trying to roll the balls, then chill the balls 30 minutes to an hour before dipping in the chocolate. You’ll also need a few toothpicks for dipping.

I used the double boil method with a sauce pan over boiling water to melt the chocolate and turn the burner down to low when your ready to dip. This way the chocolate stays warm and workable while your dipping.

Use a toothpick on the bottom and let the excess drip back into the pan. If you can, have someone else add the sprinkles while they’re still warm, that will help them set into place.

I love French toast, but adding the eggnog and the vanilla bourbon really kicks it up a delectable notch. All the flavors go together so well, that you might need to make a double batch!
