Everyone knows that milk and cookies is a killer combo, but until recently, they were two separate entities: milk in its cup, cookie in hand. The idea for cookie cup shooters was popularized by Dominque Ansel, who developed the “chocolate chip cookie milk shot” following the crazy popularity of another of his creations, the Cronut.

This version takes the concept of a cookie cup to new levels of deliciousness and peanut butter delight. A peanut butter cookie “cup” is made using Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator for a rich, nutty flavor. It’s perfectly complemented by an inner lining of creamy milk chocolate, which acts as a sort of seal so that milk can be poured into these delectable vessels. You start by drinking the milk, then you enjoy the leftover cup, which is slightly softened from the milk. It makes for a fun and absolutely addictive snack experience!

It’s not the holidays without some gingerbread, so why not skip the cookies and make a cake! This gingerbread bundt cake relies on a classic gingerbread recipe that’s easy for any skill level, with a result that’s crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and bursting with gingerbread flavor! But to make it even better, there’s a mouth-watering Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter glaze to smother on top. The glaze requires just four ingredients and a mere 5 minutes to put together, making it the perfect finishing touch to this traditional treat.

Yule Log cakes are a classic Christmas dessert that’s as beautiful to showcase as it is fun to eat. This variation marries traditional chocolate sponge cake with a White Chocolate Wonderful mousse filling to create a stunning holiday treat bursting with sweet, salty, peanut butter flavor. A great recipe for bakers who like a challenge, don’t forget to be creative with your decorating! Style your cake by mimicking a log in snow (powdered sugar) surrounded by fresh garland (rosemary) and berries (cranberry) for a festive and imaginative touch everyone will adore.

These cookies are a hazelnut spin on a classic peanut butter favorite; they’re a little more elegant with the flavor of hazelnut, and a little more grown-up with the addition of a crunchy layer of salted caramel brownie brittle crust.

If you’re looking for a fun and festive cookie to surprise the kiddos (and kids at heart) at your next holiday party, these Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies are it! They whip up in about an hour from start-to-finish, and are absolutely adorable. I like to make these cookies on the smaller side using 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie, Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps® Original Gluten Free Minis for antlers, chocolate pearls or mini chocolate chips for eyes, and mini red M&Ms for noses. If you prefer bigger cookies, you can use 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie, regular-sized Pretzel Crisps® for antlers, regular chocolate chips for eyes, and red peanut M&Ms for noses (and slightly adjust the cooking time if they need another minute or so in the oven). Either way, these cookies are sure to be the cutest addition to your cookie platter!

This is the first and last peanut butter fudge recipe you’ll ever need. I know that’s a big claim, but make it for yourself and decide for yourself! It whips up in just 30 minutes without any crazy hard-to-find ingredients, and it literally melts in your mouth. Pretzels add crunch factor, and a ridiculously easy two-ingredient chocolate ganache goes on top to not only add flavor, but also to make it look deceptively fancy. Bring this to any party and it will no doubt be the star of the show – be ready for people to ask you for the recipe!

Truffles are always so much fun to bring to a party or serve for dessert. You’ll hear endless ooohs and aaahs, and it’ll be our little secret that these beauties can be whipped up in 30 minutes using just three ingredients! They’re rich and decadent, sort-of like a slightly more grown-up spin on chocolate peanut butter cups, and they’re a hit with kiddos and adults alike. You can also keep a stash of them in the fridge for anytime a chocolate craving strikes.

The quintessential holiday beverage gets a heaping helping of peanut butter! The eggs and peanut butter give this eggnog a creamy texture, and the use of nutmeg further evokes the spirit of the season. This drink can be made ahead and keeps well, so it’s ideal for any winter festivities you have planned!

When I think of holiday cookies, cut-outs always pop into my head first. My mom has been making regular cut-outs for as many Christmases as I can remember and they’ve always been a favorite. Maybe it’s the cut shapes or the pretty decorations; I don’t know, but there’s just something about this kind of cookie that is so festive.

Here I took cut-outs to the next level with a peanut butter makeover! These cookies are crispy outside, chewy inside, and bursting with peanut butter flavor. After eating them you might never want a regular cut-out cookie again (which is really saying a lot!). If you’ve never made cut-outs before, don’t worry because the dough is pretty easy to handle; I think once you see how painless they are to make, these might just become your go-to cookie.

Topped with a simple glaze and colorful sugar or sprinkles, these cookies are perfect for getting into a holiday mood!

When it comes to making merry during the holiday season, eggnog brings the party like no other beverage.

And this year, peanut butter is coming to the party. White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter, that is, which takes eggnog from celebratory to sinfully (but oh so delightfully) indulgent.

Traditional eggnog is characterized by its use of raw egg yolks, but this version is worry-free in that the yolks (the part prone to bacteria) are lightly cooked. Heating the milk and cream along with the peanut butter allows for the peanut butter to melt into the mixture and impart its flavor, and reaching a temperature of 160 (DEGREES) F once the eggs are added will ensure that there is no worry of unwanted bacteria. It may not be as dangerous, but it’s still mighty delicious.

As for the alcohol which is commonly added to eggnog, it’s up to you if you add or abstain.
Even “virgin,” this beverage is like drinking melted ice cream, in a very good way; if you choose to add bourbon or another alcohol, you’ve got a downright tipsy pleasure.

Like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich rolled in sugar these PB&J thumbprint cookies are a sweet treat with a touch of nostalgia.

Instead of using regular smooth peanut butter Caroline Wright uses The Bee’s Knees peanut butter which gives this regular lunchbox cookie a delightful hint-of- honey flavor.

Add these to your holiday cookie trays and they’ll be gobbled up immediately!

My very favorite holiday is without a doubt Christmas. I love it so much that it’s hard for me to wait till after Thanksgiving to start breaking out the Christmas music and Santa cookie cutters. I try, but I almost never make it! Especially living up here in the mountains where by Halloween it usually looks like Christmas Town!

One of my all-time favorite Christmas characters is Frosty the Snowman, everyone’s favorite loveable snowman! I really wanted to combine my love for Frosty and my love for all things peanut butter. Therefore, I used a family secret peanut butter coconut truffle ball as the base for these adorable Frosty’s. They are crazy easy to make and so delicious. I mean, peanut butter and coconut are a match made in peanut butter heaven, but there is also white chocolate involved! Bonus, people will not be able to get over how incredibly cute they are!

I love peanut butter and chocolate – they are 2 of my favorite worlds – so why not combine them to make Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies? Yum yum! These are some of my favorite cookies, especially during the holiday season. My husband’s mother has been sending us a gift box every single year full of cookies for the past 10 years. We anxiously await these cookies because inside we know they always include Peanut Butter Blossoms. As soon as the package comes we rip it open, sit at the table and enter Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie bliss. These truly are magical!
