This seems to be my week for super de duper quick and easy recipes.
I think this one took me all of about 10 minutes to make.
I took a regular no bake oatmeal drop cookie and made a few changes to chocolate it up even more.
You can make these as drop cookies or, if you are feeling a bit lazy, just press it into a pan and slice it when you want to eat it.
No Bake Double Chocolate Cookie Bars
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate cream cheese
3 cups oats
1/2 cup coconut, shredded
Line a 9 X 9 pan with parchment paper, set aside.
In a large saucepan, stir together brown sugar, cocoa, butter, milk, and vanilla over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate cream cheese until smooth.
Stir in oats and coconut.
Press into prepared pan.
Chill until set. Slice and serve.
Ooey, gooey, tasty!
Couple of notes:
- If you don't have chocolate cream cheese, use peanut butter for a bit of a change.
- If you don't want to make it into a bar you can drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie tray lined with parchment paper)
I was worried it might fall apart when I went to cut it so I scored the bars as soon as I pressed it in the pan. I don't really think it was a necessary step. They are pretty ooey gooey and not crumbly at all.
Gotta love the no bake treats. They are sooooo easy to put together.
