This no-bake white chocolate peanut butter candy is easy to make, insanely yummy, and the perfect Christmas candy for giving helpers during the holiday season.
My savvy friend Barb shared the recipe for this no-bake white chocolate peanut butter candy years ago, and it has been a favorite holiday recipe of ours ever since. I love having a Christmas candy to have out when guests come and also to wrap in small gift bags with a monetary gift for those who help us throughout the year (UPS, garbage collectors, postal workers, etc…).
This 5-ingredient recipe yields seriously delicious candy that hits every taste bud and texture~ sweet, salty, crunchy, fluffy and creamy. This candy is seriously something that I have to discipline myself to “moderate,” and I am not even a huge fan of sweets.
Cereal: You can use rice krispies or rice crispix. I prefer the crispix because it has a bit more heft and substance.
White chocolate chips: My favorite brand is Ghirardelli, but Nestles also works great. Get what is on sale, as this recipe calls for 2 (12 oz) bags plus an additional cup. This means you will buy 3 bags of white chocolate chips. The leftover chips can be used to throw into a cake or some cookies.
Microwave the peanut butter and white chocolate chips for 1 minute on high and then in 30 second increments (stirring after each) until the chips are almost melted. The last microwave should have chips small enough to melt with a bit of stirring. If you over microwave, the white chocolate will harden and there is no going back~the candy will be ruined.
In the video below, you can see how I make this candy from start to finish.
If you make this yummy candy, please let me know how you like it! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
