Here is a great no bake cookie recipe shared by our reader, Amanda. I really love how quick and easy the no bake recipes are for baby shower prepping. They can be made ahead of time for a no worry time cutting solution. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us Amanda!

Amanda's instructions:

You will need the following ingredients:

4 ounces butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 to 4 tablespoons peanut butter, optional
3 cups oats, quick or old-fashioned
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Place chocolate chips, peanut butter (if used), oats, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Combine the margarine, milk, and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute. Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal and chocolate chip mixture; stir well. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let sit and cool for at least an hour. Mommy-to-be is sure to love them, as well as the guests!

Love this recipe

Thanks for posting this recipe. Love these no bake cookies! They are a fun and easy snack for kids to make. I make them for all of our family get-togethers.

Have you heard of peanut butter haystacks? It is another favorite of ours.

Here is the recipe if you are interested:

2 cups Chow Mein noodles
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cups salted peanuts

Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter together in the microwave. I like to stir every 10 seconds until melted and smooth. Add Chow Mein noodles and peanuts and stir well. Drop by spoonfuls on wax paper. Cool and enjoy!
