Sounds disgusting doesn’t it? The cookies are actually called no bake cookies. These cookies are very nostalgic for me. From as far back as I can remember my mom would make these for us. I think they were my dad’s favorite or something. As kids we decided that they looked like some sort of droppings, hence the name…. poop cookies. I have passed this on to my own children, unfortunately, and the poop cookie legacy lives on.
I actually really like making these because THEY DON’T TAKE VERY MUCH TIME. And you don’t have to turn your oven on. In no time at all you can have a wonderfully delicious chocolate peanut butter treat. I will have to give stuff like this up soon when I am trying to lose the baby weight, but until then….. I can’t help myself. The key to this recipe is all timing. You only boil the ingredients for 1 minute and have to hurry to put them on the wax paper. If you boil them just right they turn out shiny. Look how shiny and perfect they are mom. I was proud of this batch.
