this recipe has really good flavor- but i'm not sure what I'm doing wrong... half the time I make it the texture and moisture is great, but the other half it comes out so dry. I boil the mixture for 1 minute everytime. I've had it come out too wet, and never setting up too- but only once or twice. I continue to make the recipe tho in persuit of the perfect peanut butter no-bakes since my BF just loves them... he'll eat them runny, dry or any other way! :)
I made these not long ago and loved them! I grew up on regular boiled cookies, but had never thought leaving the chocolate out would also be good.
Quick, easy -- just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. I haven't had these since I was a kid, and we love them. Thanks for posting Becka89!
