Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad, but.... This recipe got my attention because of the "3 minute" title. Although it's true that this is a very simple, straight forward recipe there are a couple of ingredients missing, in my opinion. In other no bake recipes peanut butter and vanilla are listed and quite frankly after tasting this one I realized that those two ingredients DO matter. These cookies will satisfy a sweet tooth, but they are not "like mom used to make".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not my no bakes The taste and texture was nothing like my usual no bakes. They were sticky and gross...sad teenagers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too hot to to turn oven on! We love these! Mom used to make these all the time. I know this was the recipe she used, cuz she never added peanut butter or coconut as some recipes I've seen. Perfect for a sweet treat without using oven on a hot day. Brings back great memories! Thanks!
