No Bake Cookie Bars

Sometimes when I don’t know what to write here I sit and stare at the computer.

Sit. Stare. Watch You Tube videos. Sit. Online shop. Stare. Online shop again.

But today, as my kitchen gets gutted, I felt the need to bake, but not bake, since I can’t bake.

Got that?

So I fake baked, but not fake-baked, because I don’t like to be orange.

I made cookie bars from cookies, that basically turned out like fudge, but isn’t fudge.

What is happening right now?

I think I might have inhaled too much Spackle dust.

Let’s not-bake, fake-bake, shape-shift cookies together, kay?

No bake cookie bars with chocolate chips on foilNo Bake Cookie Bars.  Made from Cookies.

Golden Oreo cookies, actually.

Crush them up…about 30 of them.

Two measuring scoops of crushed golden oreo cookies

Then chop up some white chocolate…

Chopped white chocolate

And melt the white chocolate with sweetened condensed milk.  You’ll have to resist the urge to stick your face in there…

Melted white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk being poured into a mixing bowlPour that all over your crushed cookies.  Let it cool for a beat while you clean your face off, then add in some chocolate chips.

Spread that into your pan and cute it up with some mini chocolate chips.  I mean, if you like cute.

That’s it.

Let it firm up.

That’s what she said.


Then eat, you dirty people.

I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate. I used the same recipe but plain Oreos (that’s what I had in my cupboard) and milk chocolate. They turned out amazing! Thanks for they idea!

Hi! I was just wondering if I could pour dulce de leche on top before sprinkling minichips? My friend’s a big fan of dulce de leche and cookie bars, and I was thinking of making this for him. 🙂

Hi Shelly! I am new to your blog and am thoroughly enjoying every second of it! I was just wondering how far in advance these can be made (or how long they last being stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge). Let me know when you can. Thanhs in advance Shelly 🙂

I made these today for Christmas and they are AMAZING! They are really rich so I cut them into smaller pieces. I think these are going to be a big hit!

I’m from the UK, and more often than not do I get really annoyed when I see a recipe and it has the American units because that means I spend AGES converting them…but ALL of your recipes are too damn good that I don’t mind at all!! They’re gorgeous; have just added them to my recipe file xx
