Chocolate Biscoff No-Bake Cookies


Oven and summertime heat do not go together. They are not best friends.

Even thought I have air conditioning I hate to turn on the oven and heat up the whole house. I swear I’m a little princess when the weather starts to heat up. I do not like to sweat, I do not like to be hot and I do not like to be uncomfortable in my home. I also don’t like high electric bills (does anyone?) so I have been trying to cut down on my oven usage. That oven will just heat up the house and cause my AC to run even more. This will of course result in an ultra high electric bill that will make me weep and curse the electric company.

So, that is why I decided to make a delicious no-bake cookie for this months Secret Recipe Club. I was assigned The Life & Loves of Grumpy Honeybunch. I have known Shelby for some time now and loved all of her recipes. It took me FOREVER to pick out just the right recipe.

Her no-bake recipe called for a little peanut butter and I decided to switch things up by putting in a little biscoff spread. If you have never had biscoff spread you are missing out! It’s basically just a creamy spread (peanut butter in texture) made from crushed up biscoff cookies. Yep. It’s cookie butter. Amazing!

Chocolate Biscoff No-Bake Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups granulated sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut
2-1/2 cups quick cook oatmeal
3/4 cup biscoff spread

Directions:

In a large pot add sugar, butter, salt, cocoa and milk. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10-15 minutes. It will start to get thick and syrup in consistency. Once it reached this consistency take off heat and quickly stir in vanilla extract, coconut, oatmeal and biscoff spread. If it starts to harden too quickly, stir in just a little more milk to loosen it up.

Spoon out onto wax paper by tablespoons. Let cool, and harden and then devour.

    Love Shelby, too! And her blog. And these cookies–I love Biscoff spread so much that it is dangerous for me to have around. Put it with some oats and it’s healthy, right? 😉

    I think you’re insane. These look delicious to me! In fact…I’ll probably make them as soon as I get home. Lord knows I’m not turning the oven on!

    Oh my gosh, I am SO making these! I’m trying to figure out what to do with the ever-disappearing jar of Biscoff (it just walks onto a spoon and into my mouth before I can do anything with it). Perfect solution – they look too delicious.

    I also avoid using the oven during the summer, so totally understand the desire for a no-bake. My peanut allergy having husband is going out of town soon so I think I’ll have to give these cookies a try! Great SRC pick

    These sound amazing! I hate turning on my oven in the summer too, although I’m guilty of doing so all the time. 😛

    I love making no bake cookies and I adore Biscoff so this recipe is a winner in my book. Saving this one to make very soon.

    If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to check out my SRC entry Double Chocolate Mousse Cake

    I did no-bakes for my SRC recipe a few months back. 🙂 Mine didn’t have Biscoff though. Boo. They look delicious! I really should try Biscoff one of these days…

    Brandy, I have never heard of Biscoff! Now I will have to be looking for it. We love no bakes here too. They never last too long either!

    I have had the nagging thought about how terrible my electric bill is going to be next month because our air has been going almost non stop! Ugh.

    I am eating biscoff spread as we speak! (type?) what perfect timing!

    I actually don’t have to pay for my electric bill so I always bake away during the summer…but some day that might change. SO I’d better get these awesome cookies under my belt.

    This is my kind of summer cookie. I hate turning on the oven when it’s so hot out, but that doesn’t stop my cookie cravings. Great choice for SRC.

    No bake cookies with Biscoff spread? I’m in. What a great idea in both flavor and hot house avoidance 🙂

    Kudos for finding a way to include some biscoff spread! I finally bought a jar and just ate it all with a spoon within a week. Arg!! I just can’t keep delicious spreads in the house-peanut butter is bad enough but Nutella and Biscoff are lucky to last a week-ha! Great job-these sound fabulous! And I totally agree about the hot house, sweating, and high electricity bills. And yet I bake. I can’t be stopped.

    Could I leave out the chocolate or sub vanilla since I’m allergic?
