“When can you make those cookies again?” my husband asked. “Those cookies” referred to these no bake crispy chocolate peanut butter bacon cookies. You can see why he didn’t want to use the full name. Lucky for him, I would make them any time – they are super crazy easy (one bowl and no oven required).
These chocolate peanut butter bacon cookies have the texture of Rice Krispie treats – achieved with Corn Flakes rather than Rice Krispies. They have the no-fail taste of dark chocolate and peanut butter and the bonus of salty bacon (plus a little extra sea salt for good measure). They almost wouldn’t be sweet enough if it weren’t for the ring of powdered sugar that not only balances the flavors, but also gives these cookies their distinctive look.
