Ok, so I had a pot-luck to go to the other day and didn’t want to run out to the grocery to get stuff for a dessert to share. Since I had all the ingredients to make No-Bake Cookies, I decided to give them another try. Every time I have ever made no bakes, they have never set up. They look good, but they just fall apart when I try to take them off the waxed paper. So this time I was determined. I found the Food Network recipe and the reviews were good. People had good success with them so this was the recipe…WRONG! Once again, they looked beautiful but as soon as I tried to take them off the waxed paper…they were mush.
Well my friends, since necessity is the mother of invention, I decided to pick my mushy no-bake cookies up off the paper and roll them into balls. Then I rolled them in powdered sugar.
They stuck together this way and tasted just a yummy as they did in the cookie form.
My Pastor complimented me on my cookie balls, saying, “Those are the best repurposed cookies I ever had”. It works for me! I love to repurpose things!
So, if you mess up your no-bakes, just roll ’em into balls, it’s a perfect save!
