Chocolate Coconut Cookies No Bake


I think that no-bake cookies will always be my first love (in the cookie world, at least). Everything about them is perfectly lovable, from the fudge texture to the sweet, chocolaty flavor, to the – oh, didn’t I mention? – the ease of making them. 

They’re a recurring treat in our family. Whether I’m trying to be good with healthy no-bake cookies or just going all out with lots and lots of sugar. Like this recipe. 😉

I should mention that this recipe contains nut butter. Why? Because it does wonders for the fudgy texture of no-bake cookies. In a perfect world, you would use almond butter because Mmmmm…. almond joy no-bake cookies! All I had on hand was peanut butter, and it was still delightful – I think the coconut and chocolate flavors mellowed out the peanut flavor perfectly. 

If you choose to leave out the nut butter entirely – and I don’t recommend it – be sure to heat your chocolate syrup to just barely under the softball stage (about 234º) so that you can be sure they’ll firm up. They’ll end up having more of a crystalized texture than fudgy, but they’ll still be yummy. If you’re allergic to nuts or just don’t have any on hand, don’t let that stop you from making a batch of these delightful chocolate coconut cookies!
