No Bake Cookie Recipes

I like to make no bake cookies during the summer and am having some digging up recipes from my past.

Here is an old favorite recipe for no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. There are lots of versions of this floating around the internet, but I prefer this one because it has a bit less sugar than most of the others.

Do you have a favorite no bake cookie recipe you would like to share?

You could also do my microwave macaroons..
Microwave Macaroons..

If you have a toaster oven.. use it to brown them off.. technically I guess using a broiler isn't baking.

Do you have a favorite no bake cookie recipe you would like to share?

Cooks.com - Recipe - No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Wow! I checked out your recipe link and compared the ingredients to the recipe given me by my grandmother 25 years back. It's identical.

Hypothetically, since chocolate and raspberry go soooo well together, I wonder what it would be like to add little pieces of raspberry fruit leather, or a little raspberry extract to the recipe. Or maybe some dried currants or cherries would do the trick, just something to change things up a bit.

Tip, if you omit the milk from german chocolate icing, then you can take the cooked mixture and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, just like with chocolate no bake cookies. They are delicious. You might also add maple syrup or extract top that recipe.

Food for thought?

I know, I can hear my wife already; "Can't you ever leave well enough alone?" Sorry everyone, but I can't. It's just not in me.

No it's not crispy. It's sort of like a cross between chocolate fudge and a coconut macaroon (only with oatmeal instead of coconut).

I haven't had these in ages! Back in the 50's my mother used to make these but instead of 3 cups oats, she used 2 cups oats and 2 cups rice crispies. Her recipe also had just a little more cocoa in it - 1/3 cup.
