Made with butterscotch chips, crunchy peanut butter, peanuts, and crispy rice cereal (Special K cereal or Rice Krispies).
So, I was craving the taste of something sweet and I started thinking of these no-bake cookies. I’ve made and posted about this particular cookie before—but, oh, how I had to make them another go round.
These took all of five minutes to make. The time-consuming part was sitting around the house waiting for them to harden enough so I could pick them up.
Naturally, I’m impatient when I’m hungry and had to have one straight away. So I had no choice but to use a fork to eat the last one I was scraping from the pan. That bad boy never even made it to the cookie sheet.
Have a little more class than I did, folks, and just wait for the hardening process to take effect.
Recipe for—Special K No-Bake Cookies
1 pkg (11 oz) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
2/3 cup peanuts
3 cups Special K cereal
Melt butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a saucepan over low heat.
Stir until melted.
Mix in peanuts and cereal and stir until coated with mixture.
Spoon out into individual cookies onto a cookie sheet covered with wax or parchment paper.
Let sit an hour or longer until hardened.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, spend five minutes making any variety of assorted no-bake cookies. The best part is you don’t have to bake them.
Take-Away Life Lesson: It’s always better to wait for the cookie hardening process to take effect so you’re not holding a saucepan to your face while you scrape the last bits of cookie gump into your mouth. It’s not a good look.
