10 Amazing No Bake Cookie Recipes

No bake cookies are cookies that don’t need to be baked in an oven to be eaten and enjoyed. Often times the recipes are quick and simple. While all recipes do not use an oven to be prepared, some recipes may call for microwave use. The recipes are perfect to make with little kids or really kids of all ages but just be sure to keep a close on eye on them as some of recipes to use hot sauces or melted foods that can still burn.

These recipes are very simple for the most part and use quality natural ingredients and are so delicious.
