Reviews for Fudgy No-Bake Cookies
"I have no idea what I did wrong, but these did not mound up at all. Very flat cookie looking result. The taste was o.k. but I probably won't use this recipe again."
"This recipe has been in my family for years. It is always a favorite and I just made these with my 7 year old son. LOVE these! We don't add coconut, though."
"This recipe has been in my family for years. It is always a favorite and I just made these with my 7 year old son. LOVE these!"
"Definitely too sweet. I'd use less sugar if I made them again. I also omitted the coconut and used sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter, because of allergies."
"Way too sweet! I will use 1/3 - 1/2 C. sugar next time. I omitted the coconut (added more oats) and butter (added more peanut butter)."
"Way too sweet! I will use 1/3 - 1/4 C. sugar next time. I omitted the coconut (added more oats) and butter (added more peanut butter)."
"very good and tasty, the recipe just doesn't make enough ! lol"
"these were good, and easy.. just didn't make enough cookies ! lol"
"Super yummy and easy to make! Be sure to stick to the recommended dozen cookies per batch as they are rich treats and you don't want them too big. My husband's reaction was "wow, these are like fudge" as he devoured the cookie :)."
"My son loves these cookies and their so easy to make. It's one of those recipes that have been around for a long time. I remember tasting something like this when I was a little girl and I tried it warm and gooey right from the pan very good when warm too."
"I have made this many times. it alwasy turns out great. I do add a little extra coco, just because .."
"I would make these again, but I would not make them as directed exactly next time. I cooked them for the specified time, but they did not set up after several hours. I scraped them back into the pan and boiled them again for several more minutes. They were better, but still quite soft. The flavor was nice, rich, and chocolately. We did add just a pinch of cinnamon too."
"I doubled this recipe and spread the batter out on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Very tasty, very easy! Brings back great childhood memories."
"Love these cookies, and this recipe was so simple my 12 year old made it herself. Great for an evening when you want something sweet and you want it quick, with ingredients usually on hand."
"I'd double (at least) this recipe!"
"My mom received this recipe 45 years ago from a friend. I've made them for years -- minus the coconut. To simplify, I spread them into a greased 8-inch square pan and cut into 1-inch cubes (my ingredients are double those listed here). It's much less work and keeps them from drying out too much. It's a great recipe for a little beginning baker/helper -- my daughters both enjoyed making them ALL BY THEMSELVES at about 10 years old."
"i make no bake cookies which is almost like this but i do not use coconut but this is still good"
"Way to much sugar and my batch turned out a little runny still. Needed more oats, less sugar and maybe more cocoa and peanut butter"
"WAY too sweet. Would cut the sugar at least by half, and maybe omit the coconut."
"I've been making this for over 40 years but without the coconut. My 12 yo grandson makes several batches each weekend that he is here and the grands inhale them!"
"the one cookie my son asks for again and again. dead easy and no need to turn on the oven, a winner for me!!"
"I followed the recipe to a T and for some reason the mixture was a bit thin even after the oats were added and sat a minute..... I added about another 1/4 cup and they were PERFECT!!!! I love that this is such a small recipe b/c then I don't have 498534587 extra cookies in my kitchen calling my name! ;)"
"My husband is a fireman, and as a treat I make these for them. They all love them,these are quick and easy and not too many ingredients."
"I made these when i was home sick because they were so easy to make. I did not put the cocunut in, but that is up to yo. Thes were exelent and easy, I will definetly make these again"
"I've made these for years but without the coconut,as we are not fans of it."
