20 Easy No Bake Cookies Desserts And Snacks Recipes
20 Easy No Bake Cookies Desserts And Snacks Recipes So I’ve come up with a list of my favorite no bake desserts and cookies! Most can be made in about 5-10 minutes and you’re done and on your way to more laundry! LOL I hope you enjoy them!
No Bake Fudge Cookies Recipe
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Before you start, cut about a 20 inch piece of wax paper. Lay it on the counter. This serves as something to drop the cookies on.
In a saucepan, mix milk, sugar, cocoa, and margarine. Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, nuts. Mix until peanut butter is mixed in. Add oatmeal. Drop by spoonfuls on the wax paper.
This must be done a little quickly because the cookies start hardening pretty fast. If the humidity is high or you don’t boil them the right amount of time, they may not harden. Don’t panic! Just pour it into a container and use as fudge sauce for ice cream. …Although my kids love eating these homemade no bake fudge cookies with spoons if they don’t get hard enough to eat as cookies!

Chocolate almond bark
Spread peanut butter on a cracker and top with a second cracker. Melt the almond bark in the microwave and then dip crackers in the melted almond bark. Lay on wax paper. Try spreading different things that sound good on the crackers like marshmallow fluff, Nutella, or even a combination of these.
No Bake Cookie Dough Cookie Bars Recipe
This easy no bake cookie dough cookie bars recipe makes a delicious bar cookie from homemade chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s easy to make with only 5 minutes’ work and requires no baking!
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flour
12 oz. chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup peanut butter, optional
- Mix butter, sugar and vanilla.
- Add condensed milk and flour. Mix well.
- Fold in 6 oz. or half of the chocolate chips.
- Pour into an 8×8 pan. (Parchment paper on the bottom of the pan makes it easier to remove from the pan.)
- Melt the peanut butter and the remaining chocolate chips together in a pan or in the microwave.
- Pour on top of the dough.
- Chill, covered, for 3 hours or overnight.
- You can adjust the chocolate chips in this recipe and add more to the dough or when you melt them with the peanut butter.
- When chocolate chips are expensive, you can add a little less of them than normal and nobody will notice.
- If you aren’t a fan of peanut butter or can’t eat it you can just top these cookie dough bars with melted chocolate chips.
- This makes a thick cookie. For a thinner one, you could use a larger pan.
- Sometimes, recipes like this don’t make it into a pan. We chill it for a bit in the bowl and then everyone grabs a spoon and dives in.

Wondering if you think Nutella would be an okay replacement for peanut butter. Frustrating that most of these recipes have peanut butter :(
Love your emails and your books!
Probably wouldn’t hurt. Use any nut butter you want.
My daughter in law just leaves the peanut butter out of things like the no bake fudge cookies and you can tell no difference really.
Would love it if you would include nutritional information with your wonderful recipes. I have Type 2 Diabetes and that would be a great help to me.
Sorry, it’s just too time consuming.
Type 1 Diabetic for 40+ years
Ronnie. I have Type 1. If you buy the ingredients, use each one of those individually. Make sure you add them up PER SERVING SIZE! For example,if the recipe calls for 6 tbsp of chocolate chips, and each one is 10 carbs, write that down as 60 carbs. Do that for each ingredient. Add all of those up. Once you are done, divide that number by the total number of servings you made. You should be good. I hope that helps.
You know this is something I have always wanted to mention and never have. People often hear me say I put a cup of sugar in a recipe and they freak out because they hear a cup of sugar and make it sound like they are getting a cup of sugar with each serving but if they would take the time to think about it and divide it up by servings often they are getting only about 1-2 teaspoons of sugar for a serving – sometimes less than what these same people will dump into their tea or coffee without thinking. I do know diabetics fall into another category but often we react to things instead of taking time to figure things out like you have mentioned to do
I am so glad that I am not the only one who finds baking cookies tedious. It’s a running joke in my family that I’d rather bake a pie or cake from scratch any day than bake cookies. Ha! I will bake cookies, but I transform every recipe (just about) into bar cookies. My oldest son hangs out with a group of kids that they call the moms “mom”, I am set apart by being called “bar cookie mamma”.
Living in Hawaii is cheaper to buy or build on the mainland if you can find enough food that’s not expensive.
Starting my garden too.
Amazing mouth watering recipes. My daughter will love these recipes so I would love to make it for her birthday party. Keep sharing such interesting and yummy recipe ideas.
Just wanted to say thanks for this recipe. I enjoy the firecracker chicken and having just attempted this for the first time, I have to say it tastes 99% the same! Would have never been able to figure out how to make it myself!
