Cookies
Here are some of our favorite no-bake cookie concoctions.

In our house cookies are a must. I suppose I spoiled our kids with homemade cookies because now they won’t touch a bag of the store-bought varieties. Perhaps some of these are the reason.

Cookie Burger Sliders

Kids really love this one. Makes 24 sliders.

  • 1/4 cup flaked or shredded coconut
  • A few drops of green food coloring
  • 1 tube red decorator frosting
  • 48 vanilla wafers
  • 24 miniature chocolate covered peppermint patties
  • 1 tube yellow decorator frosting
  1. In a zipper bag mix the coconut with a few drops of green coloring. It should become a nice lettuce-green color
  2. ON the flat side of a vanilla wafer cookie put a dab of red frosting.
  3. Arrange a peppermint patty on top.
  4. Add a small pinch of green coconut.
  5. Apply a small dab of the yellow frosting and place another cookie, flat side down, on top.
  6. Repeat. Tip: If the top cookie does not want to stick well, add a little more frosting.

Haystacks

  • one package of butterscotch morsels
  • 2 cups unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups shoestring potato sticks.
  1. Melt one package of butterscotch morsels in a bowl in the microwave according to the package directions. Stir until smooth.
  2. When melted and smooth add in 2 cups unsalted dry-roasted peanuts and 2 cups shoestring potato sticks.
  3. Stir gently until everything is coated.
  4. Drop onto wax paper with a large spoon to form haystacks. Cool completely.

Variations: You can substitute white chocolate or vanilla baking chips, chocolate chips, or different nuts. You will need the potato sticks however, to make haystacks.
