No Bake Cookies are my husband’s favorite dessert. A few months ago, I decided to make him some No Bake Cookies. I went online and found (what I thought would be) the perfect recipe. Little did I know that they would turn out disastrous! The chocolate separated from the oats leaving a ball of oats and gooey chocolate melted across my entire counter. Who would have known that I could mess up something as simple as No Bake Cookies?
Well, last night, I decided I was going to give No Bake Cookies another try. This time I searched and searched for the perfect recipe. Luckily I stumbled upon this Classic No Bake Cookie Recipe. The verdict: absolute success! Enjoy!
