I had a hankering to bake something last night but knew I probably wouldn't have all the ingredients to make anything.....because I had no eggs. I flipped thru my cookbook anyway and finally found something that doesn't take eggs, No Bake Cookies. As I looked thru the ingredients list I saw they needed cocoa, didn't have this either. I decided to go ahead and make them anyway and they would just be peanut butter no bake cookies. :) I was actually excited not to have to turn my oven on too because after making supper my kitchen was hot.
I gathered the ingredients and got to work. These are probably some of the easiest things to make and have a delicious outcome.
When it was all mixed I gathered some in a spoon, formed it into a ball and dropped it onto wax paper and waited for them to cool before eating. They taste just like regular no bake cookies but without the chocolate taste. Yum!
