No bake cookies

This sounds simple,maybe even silly, but my landlord's wife gave me some "home made" cookies last Christmas, turns out all they were was Ritz crackers with peanut butter in them,then dipped in milk chocolate....amazingly good, i think i will try this this Christmas with Nutella,a little black raspberry jam,and white chocolate, does anyone else have cookie recipes that are so simple yet so very tasty?

  1. a friend of mine makes cheeseburger cookies:

    take two vanilla wafers, a grasshopper (or a thin mint), and some shredded coconut dyed green, and some yellow frosting. Assemble to resemble cheeseburgers. Nilla wafers for bun, grasshopper for burger, coconut dyed green as lettuce. Sooo decadent and so cute.

    1. These are pretty darn good!

      Off Season Chocolate Chip No-Bake Cookies
      1/2 cup milk
      1/4 C cocoa
      1/2 butter
      2 Cups of Sugar
      3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats, uncooked
      1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
      1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips - Semi Sweet
      1/2 C Coconut

      In a pot combine the milk,cocoa, butter and sugar
      Then bring the mixture to a boil over high heat
      Now reduce to med high and stir in the oats, peanut butter, and chocolate chips
      Once the mixture is thick drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper, let it cool and enjoy!

      1. my favorite no-bake cookies (surprisingly good and easy to make with kids) are very basic, and the quantities are very flexible:
        1 can peanuts
        1 bag (16 oz, I think?) semisweet chocolate chips
        1 bag butterscotch chips
        1 large can crispy chinese noodles (the kind that sometimes go on salads. can be found in most grocery stores)

        melt the chocolate and butterscotch together, pour over noodles and peanuts, and mix. make into "clusters" and set on wax paper. refrigerate overnight, then peel off. keep in cool place.


          These cookies are delicious - easy - amazing! They are a mix of gently heated eggs with sugar, then nuts and dried fruits are added. Mixture is cooled and then rolled into balls and rolled in coconut. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And freezable!)

          1. My favorite no-bake cookie involves heating sugar, butter, a little milk, cocoa, and peanut butter on the stove until bubbly. Then you stir in quick-cooking oats, cool slightly, and spoon out onto waxed paper. More candies than cookies, despite the name.
