Easiest no bake cookies


Recommended Posts

Here are some candy recipes:

 

1) Peanut Clusters:

1 package white almond bark

1 package chocolate chips

1 T peanut butter

Peanuts

 

Melt the first three ingredients in the microwave. Add the peanuts and stir to mix. Drop by spoon onto wax paper or into tiny cupcake papers.

-------------------------------------------------

2) Cranberry Crunch Bark (from Pampered Chef)

3/4c chopped almonds

3/4c craisins

2c rice crispies

1pkg (20oz) almond bark

 

Mix the first 3 ingredients. Melt the almond bark (in microwave). Combine. Pour out onto wax paper. Break into pieces when solidified.

 

----------------------------------------------------------

 

Haven't made these below, but they look easy, and you could have your kids handle the sprinkles part. We received some for a gift a few days ago:

 

3) Dipped Pretzel Sticks

Giant Salted Pretzel Sticks like these:

(You should be able to find them at the grocery store).

almond bark

sprinkles: red and green or holiday

 

Melt almond bark in the microwave. Dip the pretzel sticks 2/3 into the almond bark. While bark is gooey, either sprinkle the sprinkles over the pretzels or roll them in a bowl/plate of sprinkles. (Let me know how this works!)

My dil has been without an oven for about a month. She brought these to a cookie exchange we both attended yesterday. They taste like Reese's peanut butter cups.

 

1 c. butter or margarine, melted

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 cups confectioner's sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

4 Tbsp. peanut butter

 

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter or margarine, graham cracker crumbs, confectioner's sugar and 1 cup peanut butter until well blended. Press evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

 

2. In a metal bowl over simmering water (or double boiler - or in a glass bowl in the microwave) melt the chocolate chips with the 4 Tbsp. peanut butter, stirring occasionaly until smooth.

 

3. Spread over the prepared crust.

 

4. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.

I was going to post that peanut-butter recipe! Mine's a little different, I got it from these boards!

 

1 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy)

1 pkg (the inside packages- not the whole box) of graham cracker crumbs

1 cup butter

1 lb powdered sugar

 

Mix well.

 

1/2 package of almond bark

 

Melt, pour over top, let harden.

 

These are seriously good! They taste like Reese's peanut butter bars!

 

Another really, really easy one that I have gotten rave reviews on is this-

 

Make little sandwiches with Ritz crackers and peanut butter. Dip in almond bark.

Oooh! These are yummy, and no peanut butter (my son is allergic):

 

Our family calls these Nummy Balls:

 

1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal

1/4 cup sugar

6 tablespoons butter, softened

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

Powdered sugar or Pearl sugar for rolling

 

 

Combine butter, sugar, oats, cocoa powder, vanilla. Some recipes call for a tablespoon of coffee, and that sounds yummy, too. My son mixes these with his hands, but I use the mixer. Lazy Mummy.

 

Roll into balls about the size of a meatball.

 

Roll balls in powdered sugar.

 

Put them in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes, then enjoy!

 

 

 

ETA: This isn't my exact recipe, but it's very close - I found it searching online. Seems about right, though.

I've made these and people always want the recipe. Yum!

 

Muddy Buddies are also a big hit.

 

A friend makes this and calls it Christmas Crack:

 

2.5 cups Rice Chex

2.5 cups Corn Chex

2 cups pretzel twists

1 cup peanuts

1 bag m&m's

 

Mix all above together.

 

1 package white almond bark.

 

Melt and pour over mix from above... stir and spread out on wax paper until hardens. Break into pieces.
