  1. I have a question about your ‘No Bake Chocolate Cookies (Peanut Free)’ I use to love the no bake ones with peanut butter and made them all the time. I was greatly appreciative that you posted one without peanuts as 2 of my grandchildren have peanut allergies. The question is; I made these cookies but they really never set up to firm and were very sticky. I even put them in the refrigerator to try and harden them more to no avail. Am I doing something wrong or is this the normal texture for these cookies? Thank you for your time.

  2. I do not care for coconut, is there something else I could replace it with?

  3. Can I get these recipes sent to this e-mail as well as fb?

  4. I am wondering if you could also put the recipe with peanuts up…. I love peanuts and chocolate

  5. why is it the last two times we tried to make these they did not get hard?is it because theet mixture is not boild long enuft? how can I get this to set?thank you

  6. Is there a no bake chocolate cookies ( sugar free ) -spend with pennies [ … ]

  7. You could try the sugar substitute that cooks like sugar, it isn’t hard to work with and seems to be just like sugar without the calories. Hope that helps John

  8. My grandma gave me her cookbook which has this exact same recipe from when she was growing up in it. About 15yrs I came across another one that makes it fun for kids and calls each ingredient fun names like muddy water or bones.

  9. No margarine, it is so bad for you. Please use butter, both of you asking why your cookies did not set up….Your sugar & butter must not have reached the hard stage (margarine has to much water & bad oils – Its fake).
    Good Luck Ladies & Gentleman.

  10. I am looking for the peanut butter no bake cookie recipe

  11. I love these cookies and they are easy for the family to make together

  12. Woah! 2 cups of sugar!! I made with half of that with just 1 cup and was delicious. Could probably even cut back on the 1 cup! I only imagine 2 cups would probably hurt! LoL!
