No Bake Cookies in Cupcake Outfits

These taste just like the no bake cookies from my childhood, but they are wearing cupcake outfits. And they have coconut oil in them instead of butter! You could always pipe a tall billowy frosting on top of these guys. They’d be perfect for a birthday party of the toasty variety. Just no bake some cupcakes and live your life!

So, these are healthy little morsels to get you through your week. Pair these with a venti iced americano and life is good.

  1. No Bake Cookies are the cookies of my childhood and they are just as good as an adult. I will have to try swapping the butter for coconut oil…great idea!

  2. no bake cookies remind me of high school…but, in a good way, if you believe it! This is about as much baking as my mom will get with. I love the cupcake form!

  3. Yeah….I screwed this recipe up nine ways from Sunday. Didn’t have cocoa powder so I used melted chocolate chips and I added the peanut butter before I was supposed to boil everything together. Somehow, everything turned out okay. Added some chopped pecans too because, ya know, why not? Great recipe for those of us poor souls without air conditioning!
