My mom made these recently and I was hooked. It's only four ingredients (marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter and chocolate-covered peanuts), which are melted together and then set aside to harden. Does it get any easier than that? They are highly addictive, though. She brought me a small package of five or six, and they were gone by the next day. Sorry not sorry.
These would be perfect for a holiday gift or cookie exchange. You can easily make a few batches of them in no time at all, and everyone will gobble them up! I'm sure the last thing you want this holiday season is to be overwhelmed with making dozens and dozens of cookies, so this is an easy and quick option. Enjoy!
