No Bake Cookies

Hey there everyone!!

I have another quick and easy recipe to share with you all today. I was meaning to make no bake cookies when my oven didn’t work, but I never did. So I made these last week with my tater tot casserole and they were gone so fast that I made them again this week!! I’m pretty sure I found the recipe on Pinterest at one point but I just took a screen shot with my phone rather than saving the link, so I’ll share ingredients and directions on here–believe me, you’ll want to make these!!
