"This no bake cookie recipe is all you need for a summer afternoon snack idea. A yummy no bake cookie recipe that is almost impossible to mess up. This homemade cookie recipe will surely be a big hit with your kids and with cookie lovers. The melting of sugar and stirring other ingredients are important in helping the cookies harden. When sugar cools back down to room temperature, it will harden. A candy thermometer will help in determining if the mixture is already cooked enough. Between 230 degrees to 240 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal temperature for the sugar to melt completely."

NotesAnother factor is the butter and chocolate. Fats from the butter will coagulate once the temperature drops.

You can refrigerate the cookie dough in an airtight container for 3 days. You can add rice crispies or chopped nuts to this recipe. Adding a pinch of cinnamon would also be nice in these cookies.
