I love this recipe. I use to make them all the time and lost the recipe. Off course they name I had for them was mud pies. lol I went crazy one year and made all different kinds. Peanut butter, banana, rum, mint, added pecans and walnut ones too. It's unlimited this cookie. Read More

I must have done something wrong because these cookies were not really cookies at all or even brownie like. I (the health nut) didn't eat them and my sugar-addicted family didn't like them either. There was "no there there." They weren't gooey and sticky they looked like granola and tasted like cardboard. I don't think I did anything wrong wrong -- perhaps I didn't boil the sugar-butter mix long enough. I didn't have walnuts but that shouldn't have rendered the recipe inedible. My family suggested I throw them in the freezer to firm them up and there they sit three days later! Read More

This is a healthier version of my families favorite no-bake cookies. It tastes kinda like an Almond Joy dark chocolate candy bar. If I make it again I'll put in more coconut (this recipe just has a hint of it) and more chopped walnuts. Read More

These delicious cookies were a very easy way to satisfy any sweet tooth. We may however rolled more cookies directly into our mouths rather than for the cookie jar... Read More

The 2 min of boiling is key. Too long and you've got crumbly cookies too short and they don't set up very well. I start my 2 min. when there is a good boil on the side of the pan but not quite the whole pan in a roiling boil. I stir the entire time the sugar and butter is melting. The more coconut the better. For sure my favorite No Bake Cookies! Read More

This is a great no bake cookie variation. I cut down the sugar by 1/4 c doubled the amount of walnuts and coconut (after reading the reviews) and also added about 1 c of mini marshmallows (marshmallow creme is my fav part of mississippi mud). I decided to make these into bars instead of drop cookies so i lined my 8 x 8 pan with plastic wrap spray it with non-stick and spread it out. Put them in the freezer for an hour to hurry up the set up. Read More

This is a very quick and easy one-pot recipe perfect for whipping up some treats in a hurry. I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies were a too sweet to my taste. I may put in less sugar and up the nuts and coconut next time. Read More

I was happy to find this recipe these treats go by so many different names. I removed the nuts from it and I found that it had a LITTLE too much sugar. Next time I'll use less. All and all I'll keep this recipe on record. Read More

Really tasty and highly addictive but presentation definitely needed help. I sifted some powdered sugar over the finished cookies I brought to a back sale and they got snapped up after that! Read More

I added flax seeds with the oatmeal and replaced the walnuts with pecans. Great summer cookie since no oven is required. Always a hit! Read More
