Bisquick Peanut Butter Cookies

1. Peanut Butter Cookies

When it comes to peanut butter cookies, one is never enough!

These were a Christmas staple for my family, but these chewy, gooey treats are simply so delicious, I make them on random weekends any time of the year!

Here’s a tip when making your peanut butter cookies at home.

If you enjoy these cookies with a bit of crunch, instead of using crunchy peanut butter, stick with the creamy kind and add in your own little treats instead.

Chocolate and chopped nuts are my go-to!

A peanut butter pie made with the perfect crust, just the right amount of whipped cream, and topped with some crumbled peanut butter cups and chocolate syrup is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

The secret to this delectable dessert is adding cream cheese to your peanut butter!

It might not sound like a good idea, but trust me, it’s so delicious, this pie might be your new Thanksgiving staple.

Peanut Butter Bars

4. Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

What’s better than a peanut butter bar? A peanut butter bar topped with chocolate!

Lunch lady peanut butter bars are just too good to resist. If you grew up in the 90s, you’ll probably remember these sweet treats from the school cafeteria.

These creamy bars of peanut goodness are not only extremely delicious and addictive, they’re also easy to make at home. No baking required! 

The secret for the best lunch lady peanut butter bars? It’s all about the peanut butter to chocolate ratio.

I like mine to be half-and-half for a perfect blend of sweet flavors. One bite, and I’m in heaven!

5. Peanut Butter Lasagna

You might wonder… What’s peanut butter lasagna, and is it even any good?!

Don’t worry, there’s tomato sauce in this dessert!

This is a different lasagna made with a peanut butter filling and chocolate pudding, plus some toppings like whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter chips!

You really can’t go wrong with the chocolate and peanut combo. You can even make a crust with some crushed Oreos. Mouth-watering!

6. Peanut Butter Brownies

One of my all-time favorite chocolate snacks is brownies! I love them perfectly moist and chewy and topped with some bittersweet ganache.

But when I’m craving just a little bit more than just chocolate? I add in some peanut butter filling!

Not too much, just enough to get a little bit of peanut flavor in every bite to cut through the chocolate.

You can even top everything off with vanilla ice cream and turn it into a peanut butter brownie a la mode. It’s the perfect dessert!

7. Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Have some leftover peanut butter cookies? Give them a little spin and turn them into peanut butter cookie sandwiches! 

Mix some peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, cream, and milk, and voila!

You’ll have a filling for your cookie sandwich.

You don’t even have to wait for leftovers. Make a fresh batch of peanut butter cookies as crunchy or as chewy as you like. They’ll taste even better with some filling.

8. Butterfinger Cookies

Butterfingers were one of my favorite candy bars growing up. I still won’t pass up a chance to enjoy my cookies with some crumbled Butterfingers.

They’re wonderfully soft and buttery with that signature chewy and crunchy Butterfinger texture.

If you’ve never made these before, be warned! These cookies are very addictive, and you can’t have just one!

9. Buckeyes

Here’s a classic peanut butter dessert you can try making at home. Buckeyes are tiny balls of creamy peanut butter coated in dark chocolate.

A few of these little guys will definitely fix your peanut butter craving!

Not only are buckeyes super yummy (not to mention super CUTE), but they’re also easy to make!

You can even get the kids to lend a hand to keep them busy on a weekend afternoon.

10. Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies

If you like peanut butter sandwich cookies, you’ll love this one. Think of chocolate peanut butter Ritz cookies as your very own Oreo… but peanut butter flavored!

This is a great little treat to make when you have guests over. Take some peanut butter and sandwich in between two Ritz crackers.

Dip them in chocolate and chill. Once the chocolate has set, sprinkle just a pinch of sea salt.

You can even try it with white chocolate. Yum!

11. No-Bake Peanut Butter Fluff Pie

A delicious dessert for peanut butter lovers is this no-bake peanut butter fluff pie.

It’s so pretty, you’d never guess how easy it is to make with just seven ingredients!

Imagine this: a crust made of rice crispies and pretzels, a peanut buttery cream cheese filling with a marshmallow fluff center, with an extra drizzle of peanut butter or chocolate syrup.

This dessert is pure peanut butter heaven. So sinful, but so worth it!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

12. Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

One thing I love about making peanut butter desserts at home is that many of them don’t require baking.

That’s definitely good news because you don’t have to wait long to enjoy a sweet peanut butter treat!

Chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies are another easy dessert I make again and again.

These crunchy treats made with quick oats are a perfect afternoon snack when you need an energy boost.

Pop a few (or a lot) of these in a plastic bag for a delicious snack on the go!

13. Peanut Butter Cookies with a Creamy Peanut Butter Center

Peanut butter on peanut butter? Oh yes! This one is another spin on the classic peanut butter cookie.

You’ll need more ingredients and more time to make these, but take one bite, and you’ll know it’s worth it!

The cookie itself will be similar in texture to regular chocolate chip cookies, but the inside is a peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar filling.

Just imagine biting into that crumbly but moist cookie and having warm and gooey peanut butter ooze out. So yummy!

14. Peanut Butter Truffles

These little balls of pure peanut butter bliss may be tiny, but they’ll be the star of your dessert table.

I’ve had guests ask me where I ordered these peanut butter truffles balls, not knowing I made them in my own kitchen in just 30 minutes!

If you’ve never had these delectable bite-sized treats before, you’ve been missing out!

Rich and creamy peanut butter filling (with vanilla extract!) is coated in a mix of dark chocolate and milk chocolate. Too good to resist!

15. Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Of course, there has to be something with jelly on this list! Aside from chocolate, it’s the ultimate peanut butter sidekick.

For dessert, my favorite way to enjoy this combo is with peanut butter and jelly bars! Never tried these before?

Think revel bars, but instead of chocolate, you’ve got a PB&J filling. Sounds good, right?!

These bars will be filled with creamy peanut butter and sweet jelly. If you don’t want your bars too sweet, try using jam instead of jelly.

I love to make my own sugar-free jams at home using blueberries or apricots.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

16. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reese’s peanut butter cups are one of my favorite candies, but as someone who enjoys cooking, I say homemade is always better. And these peanut butter cup cookies are no exception!

These little bites are basically peanut butter cups coated in chocolate and placed on a small cookie bed. They look almost too cute to eat!

They also taste fantastic, so they’re always gone within a few minutes after serving.

Make these for guests or give them as gifts to friends and family, and they won’t stop thanking you!

17. Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake Bars

Can’t get enough of that PB&J combo? You’ll love these peanut butter and jelly cheesecake bars!

Peanut butter and cheesecake are an underrated combo. This should be in the hall of fame of desserts because it tastes that amazing!

For this dessert, the cheesecake itself will be infused with peanut butter and will sit on a peanut-flavored crust.

Sound good? It gets even better… with a jelly topping!

And if small bars aren’t enough for you, shape them as you would a normal cheesecake and indulge in a full slice!

18. Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Can’t decide whether to bake oatmeal cookies or peanut butter cookies? Don’t worry, you can have both!

Ever since I tasted these, I haven’t been able to stop making them.

When it comes to oatmeal cookies, I like them on the thinner and chewier side, and peanut butter definitely helps with that!

I even like to add in some crushed peanuts for more texture.

19. Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Dessert

This chocolate peanut butter no-bake dessert is simply delicious and sure to wow any guest! 

It has an Oreo crust, layers of chocolate and peanut butter mousse, crushed Oreos, and peanut butter cups.

It’s a milky, creamy, and rich dessert that will definitely be a crowd-pleaser at any party.

And the best part? It’s so easy to make! This Instagram-worthy treat takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, and even a kitchen newbie can easily whip it up.

20. Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge Candy

Aside from jelly, another seriously delicious sweet that goes with peanut butter is marshmallow.

This peanut butter marshmallow fudge candy is so easy, you can even teach your kids how to make it.

Don’t be fooled by its simplicity. This dessert is delicious!

You’ll only need semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and peanut butter.

You’ll want good quality chocolate that melts easily. Your peanut butter can be as creamy or as chunky as you want.

As for the marshmallows, you can use homemade marshmallow fluff, too!

21. Peanut Butter Fantasy Fudge

If I had to choose between chocolate or peanut butter, I would pick peanut butter every time.

Fantasy fudge is one of my guilty pleasures, so when I tried it with peanut butter, it was an instant favorite!

These rich and creamy little squares are heavenly to a peanut butter lover like me.

They’re also super customizable! You can add crushed peanuts, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even a pinch of sea salt.

Be careful though, these can be quite addictive, and you might have your tenth bite before you even know it!
