Oftentimes, everyone in our house wants cookies, but we don’t want to turn on the oven because of the heat. So, we make these easy no-bake cookies with chocolate chips and peanut butter. A LOT. The best part is the kids can practically make them start to finish, and it takes under 10 minutes!
Did you know you can make these easy no-bake cookies with chocolate chips into bars?
I like to make my no-bake cookies into bars, as you can see. I always chill them in the freezer, and pouring them into a 8×8 square glass dish is easy for storing and cutting.
My boys were so cute as they were making these the other day. They kept taking turns, each one excitedly pouring in their chosen ingredient. I hope they always remember those small moments of sniffing the vanilla and going, “Mmmmm!” Or licking the gooey dough off the spoon. It’s those simple shared experiences that make the largest impact.
Now it’s time for an amazing Le Creuset Giveaway!
Speaking of licking the spoon, I have partnered with Le Creuset again to bring you another awesome giveaway!
