Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

When the sweet tooth speaks, no-bakes are always quick to answer it. Especially when I'm settled in for the night and Wesley wants/needs something sweet. He always suggests no-bakes. I know it's because he knows that's all he'll get out of me when I'm on the couch, sprawled out, and watching television for the night.

Even this time the poor guy had to wait on most of them until the next day. It was a new recipe for the blog and so I wanted some pictures to share it. Of course, I needed day light for that, but he was a good husband and stayed out of the pretty ones for the night.

    1. I know, peanut butter is the best part! I absolutely love a baked good that I can throw together in a couple of minutes. Although, it looks like my oats went to battle every time I make my no bakes.
