Attention grabbing name isn't it!? We call them frogs where I live but I have heard of them referred to as Macaroons, No-bakes and even "blots". No matter what the name, they are DELICIOUS!Cook time includes time in the fridge.

When I was a kid on PEI, we called these spider cookies. The recipe is perfect, and incredibly easy. Takes me back...

I make mine with peanut butter in them. We call them cow pies where I live.
