5 Summertime No-Bake Cookie Recipes

5 Summertime No-Bake Cookie Recipes

Author: Shelly Hill
When it comes to making cookies in the Summertime, I prefer to use the stove-top method. Not only is the stove-top method quick and easy, but it saves on heating up your kitchen.

I find it best to line my countertop or tabletop, with some parchment paper. You will want to 'drop' your cookies onto the parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat, to let them cool. After they have cooled to room temperature, store them in an airtight container.

Here are 5 of my favorite no-baking involved cookie recipes.

Raisin No-Bakes

2 c. raisins
2 c. Chinese noodles
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. honey

Mix raisins and Chinese noodles in bowl. Put peanut butter and honey in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until smooth and hot (no need to boil). Pour over raisin mixture, toss with a fork until evenly coated. Shape rounded spoonfuls into size of golf balls pressing gently with fingers. Let cool.

Chocolate Cracker Cookies

Round Crackers (like Ritz)
1 1/2 lbs. almond bark
peanut butter
12 oz. bag of chocolate chips

Spread peanut butter on crackers. Top with second cracker. Melt almond bark with chocolate chips. Dip sandwich cookies into the chocolate mixture using tongs. Drop onto waxed paper and let cool.

Chow Mein Bites

1 c. peanut butter
12 oz. pkg. butterscotch chips
4 c. miniature marshmallows
4 c. chow mein noodles

Place peanut butter and butterscotch chips in the top of a double boiler. Heat over hot water until melted. Combine with marshmallows and chow mein noodles. Mix well and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Chill for 1-2 hours.


1 box vanilla wafers
1 stick butter, softened
1 sm. can frozen orange juice
1 box of powdered confectioners sugar
shredded coconut

Crush vanilla wafers to make crumbs. Mix with a stick of butter, orange juice, and sugar. Roll in small balls about the size of walnuts; roll in shredded coconut. Chill for 1-2 hours, until firm.

Chocolate Oatmeal No Bakes

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 c. margarine
pinch of salt
1/2 c. milk
3 c. quick oats (oatmeal)
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large pan and boil for 1 minute, stirring often. Turn off the heat and stir in the oatmeal, peanut butter and vanilla. Drop by the spoonful onto wax paper. Let them cool and they will harden as they cool.
