  1. This looks yummy. i like the fact that it also, looks easy to make, simple ingredients that are easily accessible and do not break the bank . The refrigerating for three days requires patience though as one awaits the tasty looking snack. I’m gonna give it a try. I’m not much of a baker because , really do not have enough time to go through complicated recipes but this looks doable to me. Thank you  

    1. Good news!  You don’t have to refrigerate them for 3 days before eating, they are good to eat as soon as they have cooled and set up.  I was referring to storing leftovers.  Thank you for catching my error!

  2. I absolutely love no bake cookies!! I can eat a whole dozen by myself one of my favorites. I used to stop at the store on the way to work and pick up 4 every day LOL 

    Now that you have provided the recipe I can make my own and save me a ton of money in the process. Bookmarked your website for more tasty bites of information.

  3. Ah yes the perfect dessert! This is literally perfect for people like myself who are just trying to have some random sugar here once in a while every now and then. This is going to be delicious! I am so excited to actually make some stuff with sugar in them. My roommates love me and I love you for this amazing food

    1. Misael, it sounds like your roommates really owe you one (or maybe two!) for all the cooking you’ve been doing.  These cookies have always been a favorite in my house and sell like hotcakes at the school bakesales.  The best part is that they only take a few minutes to make.  You can satisfy that sugar craving in no time!
