Quick Dessert or Treat: No Bake ‘Em Cookies

Posted by

Ever been in the situation where you’re making dinner for some unexpected, but very welcomed guests and your oven is already working overtime? How on earth are you going to throw together a dessert if you can’t bake it? We ALL know dessert is a must, especially in my house! Lucky me, I remembered there was such thing as no bake cookies.

These No Bake ‘Em Cookies aren’t your normal or standard no bake cookies that you may have made before. I made some pretty nifty adjustments because I had run out of cocoa (I think I just swore there!) and because I wanted some ingredients incorporated that I adore! Take a look!

Quick Dessert: No Bake ‘Em Cookies
Prep time

Cook time

Total time


A no bake cookie that incorporates chocolate, peanut butter, and other favorite flavors that’s quick to put together for a dinner party or a fast treat!
Serves/Makes: 12-24

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butterscotch chips
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup coconut plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. In a saucepan bring sugar, butter, milk, and salt to a rapid boil for 1 minute.
  2. Stir in vanilla, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips until melted. Then stir in chunky peanut butter.
  3. Add quick cooking oats, coconut, mix well.
  4. Working quickly, drop by teaspoonfuls or tablespoonfuls (depending on the size you’d like your cookies) onto waxed paper. Sprinkle tops with coconut. Press down slightly so coconut sticks.
  5. Allow to cool completely.

See! Not your standard no bake cookie. But OHH EEMMM GEEE! They were a hit! I had cookies missing all over the place on the waxed paper while they were cooling. None of us could wait until they completely set up. Then when they did, they were goners. What can I say? I’ve raised some crazy sweets lovers and turned my hubs into one. And anyone that comes to visit always knows they’re in for a treat…literally :)

  1. Mmmm I love anything with butterscotch and with the coconut, even better! Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Have a blessed week & come back soon!

    • Me too! Some of my favorite flavors for sure. Thanks for hosting as always!

  2. Made these over the weekend without the butterscotch chips! Mine turned out a little wet, but still SO good!

    • So glad you liked them! My guess is if they turned out on the wet side, the rolling boil time of the sugar mixture may have been a little off for you. The full minute is necessary to get the correct consistency. If you over boil, they’ll be dry and crumbly. Better luck next time :)

  3. These look so yummy!!! :) I want these like right now! LOL!! Newest follower @ http://www.craftycagirl.blogspot.com
