No Bake Cookie Recipe

No Bake Cookie Recipe, a Blue Ribbon Winner in the 1970s is a peanut butter cookie made with graham crackers, nuts, coconut and dipped in chocolate.

These cookies also called Golf Balls.

This is a wonderful recipe for getting into the joyous family holiday spirits by letting the children help make!

For gifts from the kitchen, place several in a clear glass jar, cover with a decorative lid or top and tie on a pretty bow.

Another idea is to place in a square or rectangular gift box with other cookies and gift wrap.

Homemade cookies are welcomed!

No Bake Cookie Balls

  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 18 oz. jar crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 lb. box powdered sugar
  • 7 oz. can fine coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients together, thoroughly.

Chill mixture in refrigerator at least 2 hours until it is easy to shape with the hands into large marble size balls.

Chill in refrigerator again for a few hours for easy dipping.

Cookie Coating

  • 2 packages chocolate chip or butterscotch morsels
  • 1/2 block (2 oz.) household wax*

Melt wax and morsels together in top of a double boiler.

With fork or candy dipping spoon, dip each golf ball into coating.

Place a wire rack on a cookie sheet to catch drippings.

Place dipped balls on rack until coating has stopped dripping and cooled.

Place cooled dripped coating back into pot for reuse.

*Household wax is usually found in the canning supplies section of the grocery store.
