We’re getting ready for Hanukkah at our house! Kenya, Chloe and Gemma get such joy from lighting the candles for eight straight nights, reciting the blessings as a family, making potato latkes, getting to open a little gift each night, and of course, making these Missouri Cookies! These delicious morsels are super easy to make, only a few ingredients and don’t even have to be baked!

I learned this recipe from a friend of mine who is an incredible chef and happens to be a walking encyclopedia on everything having to do with Jewish cuisine — perfect for me since I’m always trying to learn more about that part of our family’s heritage. Her Aunt used to make these Missouri Cookies ever year for Christmas Eve and now she makes them at her home for Hanukkah as a sweet way to unite two cultures.

I also make them every year now and everyone absolutely loves them. They’re one of my family’s traditions now too. Missouri Cookies are really easy to make, perfect for the kids to help you with, and a stove top recipe — no oven required. And did I mention that they are INSANELY delicious? The perfect combination of chocolate (made from scratch!), peanut butter and oats wrapped into one tasty, chewy cookie.
