Looking for a quick and easy dessert to make? Then, this recipe’s for you! These No Bake Hot Chocolate Cookie Bars are perfect for parties, holidays, and so much more.
We were invited to a cookie exchange last weekend and I made the most delicious cookies ever. Well, I actually made cookie bars because there was no time to scoop out cookie dough into cookies. And, I’ve mentioned before that I prefer bars over cookies because you can just make them and cut theme. I wanted a recipe that Connor could help me with so I went with a no bake recipe and these No Bake Hot Chocolate Cookie Bars did not disappoint! Not only are they delicious, but they’re easy and no baking is required. Now this is my kind of dessert!
And guess what? I bet you have all the ingredients in your pantry right now. This recipe is pretty versatile. I used white chocolate pudding but you can use vanilla or chocolate. I added peanut butter but if your allergic, you can definitely leave it out.
