How To Make No Bake Cookie Recipes


No Bake Recipes

I love a good no bake recipe. You basically bring some corn syrup, brown sugar and peanut butter to boil and stir it into your cereal mixture. That easy folks…..and delicious!!

Transfer to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and press evenly.

  • 2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini M&M’s
  1. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with foil and coat it with cooking spray. I used parchment, either works great. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Rice Krispies, oats and pretzels. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal-pretzel mixture and stir until evenly coated. Pour all of this into the prepared pan and press down to make level. Immediately press the mini M&M’s into the top.
  5. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
