No-Bake Crack Cookies….

These cookies are ridiculously addictive! Upon sampling one, I immediately dubbed them “crack cookies”. Super simple to make with relatively healthy ingredients, I think Santa will love these. Not to mention, he could use some more whole grains in his life. (Just sayin’…) 

A pinch of Cayenne gives these cookies a grown-up twist and a delightful little kick, almost like a Mexican Hot Chocolate. Feel free to omit it, but I recommend trying it at least once. You may be surprised!

In other news, Dickens is super excited for Christmas! 😉
