My older son decided to mix it up this year with his birthday dessert. He requested a giant no-bake cookie instead of a cake.
I was happy to grant his request because:
1.) no-bake cookies are WAY easier to make than a cake and icing from scratch and 2.) I love no-bake cookies too.
I thought I would share the recipe in case you want to create one too.
My husband has already requested a no bake cookie cake for his birthday after tasting my son’s.
No Bake Cookie Cake Recipe
- 6 Cups of quick-cooking oats
- 2 Cups of White Sugar
- 1 Cup of Milk
- 1 Cup of Butter
- 8 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- I Cup of Creamy or Crunchy Peanut Butter
Combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan. Stir and bring to a boil for 1 1/2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add oats and peanut butter. Mix all of the ingredients.
Put aluminum foil or parchment paper on a baking sheet and add the mixture to create a giant cookie.
Refrigerate to harden.
Best served with ice cream
(Breyer’s Blast Girl Scout Thin Mints flavor is AMAZING on top!)
