No Bake Cookie Bars

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



Watch You Tube videos.


Online shop.


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?

PhotobucketNo Bake Cookie Bars.  Made from Cookies.

Golden Oreo cookies, actually.

Crush them up…about 30 of them.


Then chop up some white chocolate…


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

PhotobucketPour 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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts.

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!


I just made these and tossed in a cup of rice krispies, for extra crunch. So good!!


Every day you give me a chuckle! Thanks for that, and the great recipes!


Shelly, Your comments below photos made me laugh out loud!! You are too funny!! Recipes looks delicious. Thanks


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. 🙂


Hiiii! Any alternatives for golden cookies? found this at BuzzFeed and I’m from manila and there’s nowhere I could find golden cookies 🙁

I was laughing throughout the whole thing. They look delicious. Thanks for the recipe, I need it since I don’t have an oven!


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 🙂


you are a genius.

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


this was brilliant quick easy to do last minute make thanks for the yummy i put your link to it when i mentioned that i made it on my blog earlier.

Amazing….. Love it when you can create an amazing thing out of limited thing/situation


I was in meeting on Monday and I saw a bag on Golden Oreos on my co-workers desk and reminded me of this recipie and needless to saw I could not stop picturing these bars. So needless to say I had to make these and I am so glad I did. And you were right it was really hard to not just stick your face in the white chocolate and condensed milk mixture. I made the mistake of cutting the bars at 4:30am and I might have sunk a taste test ( just to make sure they were okay to… Read more »


These look sooo good what a super idea for no bake cookies for the hot Summer days!

Christina @ Oven Adventures

hilarious, i totally do the same thing when I have nothing to write about, like write now i should be writing a post but instead im laughing my ass off at yours.


Could you use white chocolate morsels in place of the chopped white chocolate? If so, would I need to chop them up first?

Emily @ Life on Food

I think I would be sweating sugar after eating these. That’s OK though cause that would make me extra sweet right? Love it!


These look yummy – all your stuff does! Seriously – loved your nail polish – great summer color:) Do you know the name/brand?


looks delicious! any recipe that is no bake is fine by me 🙂 also, nice horse video. totally out of left field, but funny 🙂

Curious Cook

Wow! This looks super simple..and yummy too..I have not tasted golden oreos but I’m sure the regular one would be equally yummy.

Cant wait to try it.
