Comment on this recipe

"This is a 'must make' cookie every holiday season. My son says it isn't Christmas without this favorite of his. One year he even requested a container to take along on a Colorado skiing trip with friends."

Ingredients

2 pounds white almond bark
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups dry roasted peanuts
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Instructions

Melt white almond bark and peanut butter in top of double boiler. Stir in peanuts, marshmallows and cereal. Using a teaspoon, drop dough onto sheets of wax paper. Allow to set up.

Note: Cookies stay fresh for several weeks if kept in a good plastic container. Cookies may be frozen.
