My first thought after writing the title to this post is that I need to come up with a better name for these “cookies”! Feel free to share some ideas in the comment section! Every year, I bake Christmas cookies with my Mom and Grandma; this is one of my very favorite traditions and I’m so happy we are still able to enjoy this day together each year. These ‘graham cracker cookies’ are always saved for the end of the baking day, because they are simple to make and an easy way to end a long day! They are also delicious and a common favorite from the many people we send cookies plates to during the holidays. Only 3 ingredients are needed for this tasty treat!
Gather your peanut butter, graham crackers and melting chocolate. We are lucky enough to live near an Amish country and the chocolate in this photo is just the best! If you can find something similar sold in bulk like this, please use it over chocolate chips! Yum!
Before you melt your chocolate, get the cookies ready by breaking the graham crackers, spreading peanut butter and making a sandwich out of them. Quick tip…we run a knife along the graham cracker dotted lines before breaking them into individual pieces; this helps significantly to reduce the crumbling and falling apart of the cracker. Once they are all made, use a fork to dip them in chocolate and turn to coat as needed. Lay them on wax paper to set and enjoy!
