I know things can get so busy during the holiday season and this shortcut recipe is the perfect way to have a homemade treat for gifting! I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t love them!

For this recipe I used my go-to brand of kettle chips – Kettle Brand potato chips. They’re perfectly crisp, consistency delicious and always a snack everybody loves!

They work magic in these simple cookies, adding in some richness and a nice lightly salty flavor to balance out all the sweetness.

Tips for This Recipe

  • Crush kettle chips about the same size as the cornflakes. Measure after crushing.
  • Don’t use crunchy peanut butter, only use creamy peanut butter here. A natural peanut butter should be fine as long as it’s not runny.
  • Have ingredients and parchment ready because this sugar mixture will start to set quickly.
  • Also toss with cornflakes and chips and drop right away before it starts to set in the saucepan, then add sprinkles immediately if using.
