Fudgy No-Bake Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate are a perfect combination. My cookie recipe can be changed to suit your sweet tooth. Try adding almond or mint extract. These cookies make a fun garnish for ice cream, too.—Beth Brown, Naples, Florida

    My stepdad is the self proclaimed cookie monster, saying he never met a cookie he didnt like. so, I make him a different batch of cookies each month, and have been doing so since 1990. I try to never duplicate except the December batch which is a mix of holiday favorites. However, I sneak these no bakes in in between as he loves them so much!! Perfect just as written!

    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.

    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).

    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 :).
