IMG_3541The first thing I can ever remember making as a little girl was No Bake Cookies.  I got the recipe at school.  It was on a piece of comic-like newspaper…with lots of chocolate stains on it..yep, a true keeper, by and large.  Sometimes we forget about our tried and true recipes. But No Bake Cookies should always be remembered. When you get a craving for something sweet and chocolate, these little babies are just the cure.  No oven needed, and only one pot to clean.  You probably have all the ingredients on hand. So whatcha waiting for?…you know you want some No Bake Cookies!
