No Bake Chocolate Cookies

I was just looking through my archives to see when the last time was that I posted a recipe. It was over a year ago! I shouldn't be surprised because I really didn't cook a lot this last school year.

Since I organized my scads of recipes to try, I've been slowly trying new things, and now I have a stack of recipe cards to make. Not that I'll get around to making them all into recipe cards, but it's good to have goals.

The one I'm posting today was e-mailed to me by my sister in 2007. Yikes! When we were teenagers she used to make these for us all the time. You know, when she wasn't beating us up. Anyway, I think most people have had one version or another of No Bake Chocolate Cookies, but I never had a recipe card for them before, so now I can make them whenever I want.

Zoe especially loves these and begs me to either make them or let her make them. I say let her make them. Now that my girls are getting older it's really nice to have them cook for me. They're always complaining that I only had kids so I could have a slave. You know, because I make them do soooooo many chores.

In reality I never considered this extra benefit of having kids. "Sweetie, I don't feel like running downstairs for my purse. Run along and fetch it for me, will you?"

"Pick that up for me, please. I'm old and I don't bend."

Etc., etc.

I'm just living the life.

Anway, super easy recipe that doesn't require the oven. Make some today and enjoy!


  1. The no-bakes recipe I use was given to me literally 40 years ago, and I still have that original recipe card. I love the idea of using the cupcake papers for them!

    1. I guess you could say it's one of those timeless recipes.

  2. I make these but do not use sugar at all, Instead use natural sweeteners like Raw honey. You can also throw in other healthy things with out the kids knowing like flax seed, wheat germ, and nuts.

    1. That's good to know, Heather. I cut down the sugar from the original recipe already, but it's good to know I can go farther. The chocolate probably gives it a good amount of sugar anyway. You're a sneaky one with the fiber too. What a great idea.
