Experiments

Recently I have been experimenting with my no-bake recipe. I have gotten suggestions for new flavors from some friends. So, Monday I tried making a coffee flavored no-bake. I replaced the cocoa powder for a couple of tablespoons of a cappuccino mix plus a little bit of instant coffee. It took a little bit longer for the cookies to set up, but they ended up tasting wonderful!!! They are soooo very good! And my hubby has named the new cookie the no-brews...how cute is that?!

Then yesterday I tried making a white chocolate no-bake. I added white chocolate pudding powder instead of the cocoa, but it looked like they weren't going to set up (they finally set up overnight). So I tried a second time to get it right. I decided to add a lot less peanut butter (since I wanted to keep the cookies a whitish color) and used a ton of marshmallow cream. I was very pleased to see this batch set up! And they tasted pretty good too!!! But next time I will add a few white chocolate chips to the mix and take out the peanut butter completely...should make them perfect!

Hmmm, I wonder what flavor I should try next?

Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. No messing with the recipe! Are you trying to give me a heart attack?

Coffee? Eww. I guess I am just a no-bake purist.

Not as much as the original. They are merely another cookie to me, not on par with the OG NBs.

I'd be willing to try the coffee ones but I'd be the only one who'd eat them. That could be a good thing....

Personally, I'm think you could work on how to ship those puppies out and keep them fresh:)
