Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

My friend Alice shared these super simple peanut butter no bakes with me and I loved them. It is kinda kookie to put corn chips in cookies,  but it is oh so delicious.

With only four ingredients these peanut butter no bakes come together easily and you don’t even need to turn on the oven. In minutes you have a delicious treat!  Be sure to not boil more than a minute. You want these cookies gooey like caramel. YUM!

You will need:

  • 1 corn chips 9.75 to 10.5 ounce bag
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of light corn syrup

How to make Corn Chip and Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies –

Spread corn chips in a greased 15 in x 10 in by 1 in baking pan.

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil, stirring frequently to help dissolve the sugar.  Boil 1 minute, no longer. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter. Stir until smooth. Pour over corn chips.


I thought a drizzle of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips would be a nice touch over the peanut butter Fritos. However, it really wasn’t necessary. Cool, break (tear — it’s gooey)  into pieces or…


make individual cookies. You can even cut into squares and make Frito Bars. Give them a try! I would love to know what you think!

      1. Then do not make them. People are free to eat what they want. That means you do not have to like or even read this recipe it is your choice!

      2. Get a grip, lady, not everyone is a health nut. These are for special occasions, not for dinner every day! I’d hate to eat at your house without an occasional treat!

      3. I love these! I use fritos scoops and they dont break. Let them sit at room temp instead of freezing.

      4. I read through nearly all of the comments. I am definitely trying these, exactly as the recipe is written. I’ve also tried many of the other recipes mentioned, however, the texture and flavor combinations is different with each. I’m excited to try the textural crunch and distinct saltiness of the corn chips with the Pnut butter. This combination intrigues me!

      5. National corn chip day is coming up on Jan 29 – I think these have to be part of the menu!

      6. I make these every year at christmas but with special K cereal. After spreading the hot cereal mixture out I melt semi sweet choc. And butterscotch chips together and poor over top. Let them cool and cut into bars. Everyone wants them every year. SO GOOD ….

        them every year.

      7. Great recipe the only thing I changed was to add some jalapeños I also make a chocolate jalapeño cake yum good

      8. Great recipe the only thing I changed was added just a pinch of jalapeño powder chocolate and hot pepper goes great I also make a chocolate jalapeño cake um um good

      9. I was wondering if any one else had the same problem I did when goin to break them apart? Pretty much destroyed the integrity of the chips and turned into fritos toffee basically. Didn’t think it was going to be that tough to break apart especially for sitting in the freezer for a good half hour. Any tips would be,appreciated.

      10. Have you thought of adding in dome marshmallows? Maybe and 1/2 the sugar???? Would stuck better like rice crispy treats???
