That title is a mouthful, friends, I know. But I had to get all of the important characteristics of these goodies in that one title, right? No-bake because you will not believe how fast these are to put together; maybe a 10-minuter, right here; the easiest “cookies” you’ll ever make. Chocolate, because, well, they are sweet and rich and contain just the right amount of cocoa to give you that chocolate fix you are craving. Chewy, because serving these frozen provides just the perfect texture and chew. And cookies, I suppose, because they are the perfect hand-held, grabbable sweet treat.
To know Nick is to love Nick. And to know Nick is also to know that he has a sweet tooth like no other. Untamed, perhaps. So this recipe came from a need to have something on hand that he can grab when he wants something sweet…and they have become a hit with all five of us. Super yum with ingredients we can all feel really good about is a winning combo in my book. I hope you love these as much as we do!
