no bake cookie recipe

No bake cookies are so great for these hot summer months.  Who wants to heat up the house using the oven? I made these for my daughter’s friends, and they were quickly gobbled up!

I shouldn’t have been surprised that everyone wanted seconds and thirds. But recently my cheesecake recipe was a flop with them {who doesn’t like cheesecake?}

 You can’t beat the combination of peanut butter and chocolate in this no bake cookie recipe.

Don’t you just want to pop one of those into your mouth?  These guys are chewy, yummy, and easy to make. Who could ask for more? You might want to make a double batch because these babies are addictive and they go fast.

The first time I ever made these cookies, I didn’t understand their name. No bake cookies.   The fact that you still put everything in a pan and cook it over the stove was confusing.  I guess it doesn’t technically bake in the oven, but that seemed like splitting hairs to me. I soon learned to get over it because these cookies are YUMMY!!

I used almond bark in this no bake cookie recipe because I didn’t have any cocoa powder on hand. I loved the change! The cookies didn’t get the dark chocolatey color they usually have but they still had the chocolate flavor. They even seemed more oatey and chewy to me. If you don’t have the almond bark, you can substitute 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.

Now I really want to make some of these.  But since my girls have already made cookies and brownies today, I’m not going to.  I hope you try these cookies. I’m sure you will love them as much as we do.  If you like this post, feel free to pin or share it.
