I acquired this recipe from a lovely woman named Nora. After eating so many of these no-bake cookies at the Ziegenfus household, I decided to finally make them myself. They’re so easy, delicious, and addicting. I’d definitely add them to a “must-try” list if I were you. I’m even going to make a bold statement and say that these are kind of, sort of healthy. Just ignore the entire stick of butter and the two cups of sugar! I think considering them a healthier alternative to brownies would be appropriate though. Good luck and enjoy!
