  1. These sound great could you use orange powder and lemon powder and make lemon and orange nobake cookies?

  2. Loved no bakes since I was a kid so this was a New super fun one to try. I love the strawberry flavor it was very strawberry fruit forward tasting and so good. My son said it tasted just like a strawberry skittle which is his favorite lol. Great job with this recipe.5 stars

    1. Strawberry oil is stronger and it won't evaporate. If you try these using strawberry extract, I would love to know how they turned out!

  3. I wondered if using marshmellow cream instead of cream cheese would turn out yummy and set up properly? Of course that kind of made me think of a rice crispie treat, so then i wondered which would turn out best with that combination, quick oats or rice cereal?
    I might have to play around with this idea.

    1. Hi Kris- I think sticking to the cream cheese is the best option. Fluff is very different. Cream cheese is high in fat and has a thicker texture that holds the cookies together. It is more like butter than fluff! I like your thinking though- I bet you can come up with some great dessert ideas. Enjoy!
