My favorite times to make no bake cookies are when I have a major sweet craving but don’t feel like getting out my mixer or when it is super hot outside and I don’t feel like turning on the oven. Both are perfect opportunities to make this no bake cookie recipe!
When you think about a no bake cookie recipe you probably think about an incredibly tasty chocolaty, peanut-buttery, oatmeal cookie. Right? I would say you were right. But let’s kick things up a notch!
These cookies are already tastefully textured with oatmeal but sometimes I love a cookie with a little bit of crunch to it! So in this recipe I added some toffee bits and substituted creamy peanut butter with super chunk peanut butter. Doesn’t that sound awesome!
Toffee Crunch No Bake Cookie Recipe
In a sauce pan you first are going to want to melt together your sugar, butter, cocoa powder and milk. Make sure to keep stirring.
Once it starts to boil you can stop stirring and let boil for one complete minute. If you don’t let it go a full minute the cookies won’t hold their shape. If you let it go to long then the cookies could dry out or burn. So set your timer!
Now you are ready to add in the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and toffee. Get that all mixed together nicely.
In a medium bowl mix together your hot mixture with your oats. Mix well.
You now want to start to move swiftly so your cookie mixture doesn’t set up in the bowl. Have your parchment paper laid out on your counter or table ready to go.
Scoop out heaping spoonfuls and place on the parchment paper in rounded mounds. I like to make mine about 2 inches wide. I’m not shy!
Let cool completely, then enjoy!
