"These cookies were just ok for me. They were not as good as the recipe for no bakes that uses peanut butter. I will not be using this recipe again."

"Everyone loved these. I put a little kosher salt on some after I put them on the waxed

paper (before they firmed up) and on some
I added chopped walnuts. Will make again!"
