This week I have an easy no bake dessert recipe, because it’s HOT here; way too hot to turn on the oven to make dessert when the kids or I want something sweet after dinner. The highs were in the 100’s, and standing anywhere on pavement felt a little like being in an oven. It’s CRAZY hot.
Luckily I have this recipe from when I was a kid. It makes a yummy treat without heating up my house, is fast, and only has three ingredients.
This is along the same lines as the Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups recipe I posted a couple months ago, but doesn’t take as long to make. It’s also a great one from kids to help with, and if they lick their fingers or steal bites there’s no raw egg. In fact, for me, the ‘raw’ cookies are just as good as the finished ones. I loved melted chocolate, so the last scoop or two of the warm mix never makes it to the cookie sheet, and instead goes straight to my belly.
To make the cookies you melt peanut butter and butterscotch chips together, then pour it over corn flake cereal. Mix everything together, spoon out onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper, put in the fridge for a half hour and you have dessert ready. Super easy.
No Bake Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies
11oz bag of butterscotch baking morsels
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
4 cups corn flakes
- Melt butterscotch morsels in a small saucepan on low. When almost completely melted, add peanut butter and stir to combine.
- Pour peanut butter and butterscotch mixture over cornflakes and mix well.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper covered cookie sheets, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
I get around 3 dozen cookies, but I can be heavy handed with the spoonfuls. If you made them a little smaller you’d get closer to 4 dozen. Enjoy!
