Food


image.pngOne of my all-time favorite things to do on a lazy, rainy day is bake. BUT, not when its upwards of 85 degrees outside. That’s why no-bake cookies are a great happy medium. You can get your baking fix without having to slave over the hot oven. Chocolate peanut butter no- bake cookies are easy, but more importantly, delicious. They’re a fan favorite that everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, will love. If you are a) a lover of chocolate b) a lover of peanut butter and c) would like a key to everyone’s heart, you’re in the right place!

These chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies are the epitome of textural perfection. They are gooey and have the perfect balance of chocolate and peanut butter– If that’s not pure magic, then I don’t know what is!

Here are the instructions to a simple, fast, and delicious treat to make on any given day that anyone and everyone will enjoy. You can thank me later. 😉

  1. Wow I didn’t know that no-bake cookies could be this easy! They’d be perfect for me since my tiny apartment doesn’t have an oven. I should try these next weekend with my roommate. She’s obsessed with anything that has peanut butter
