We had friends coming over for dinner and I wanted to make a quick and easy dessert. I’ve been wanting to try no bake cookies for a long time but I was worried that my cookies may not set because I live in a humid climate…I was right. Unfortunately, I made them on a pretty rainy and humid day so they just wouldn’t harden. I placed them in the refrigerator and it helped. We ate them quickly before they melted in our hands and we all loved them, especially the kids. My friend Molly said they reminded her of an almond joy without almonds. They literally took just a few minutes to make and tasted fantastic. I recommend making these cookies when it’s not humid or rainy.
