I didn't end up baking any actual cookies this year, but I made a few no-bake candy sorts of things.

First, an old family favorite, buckeyes. These are one of my favorite Christmas cookies - like homemade Reese's (yum!), and they are super easy with only 4 ingredients!


  • 1 stick softened unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 lb. powdered sugar (3 1/2 cups)
  • Semi- or bittersweet chocolate chips (I used about a bag and a half)

1. Beat butter, peanut butter, and powdered sugar together until blended (it may look a bit crumbly, but there shouldn't be patches of unmixed sugar).

2. Roll into small balls, separate on a cookie sheet, and chill or freeze until solid.

3. Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler, stirring frequently.

4. Using a toothpick, dip the peanut butter balls one at a time into the chocolate. Place back on cookie sheet and chill again until chocolate is hardened.

5. Smooth out the toothpick holes and serve!
