NO BAKE COOKIES
Hello, everyone! This is Emily from is this REALLY my life?. I am super excited about sharing these no bake cookies with you for two reasons: one, they don’t require a 350-degree oven in the middle of summer; and two, this is my mom’s recipe and one of my all-time favorite cookies.
These cookies are always a hit. The best No Bake Cookies Recipe out there! You can’t go wrong with these. In fact, I eat them until the extreme intake of peanut butter causes multiple canker sores in my mouth.
And then I eat some more.
HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE COOKIES
Avoid the oven, indulge your taste buds and give these no-bake cookies a try. But before you do, a bit of advice when it comes to boiling the butter/sugar/cocoa/milk mixture (because I’m all about others learning from my mistakes):
Don’t boil the mixture too long, the cookies will harden at record speed and you may not be able to get them onto the waxed paper before they set.
IF you don’t boil it long enough, the batter may not set. In that case, you can either put them in the refrigerator, or my personal favorite, eat them with a spoon.
