No Bake Cookie Bars

Four no-bake cookie bars stacked

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.  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…

Pour 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.

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

  2. 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. πŸ™‚

  3. Hiiii! Any alternatives for golden cookies? found this at BuzzFeed and I’m from manila and there’s nowhere I could find golden cookies πŸ™

    1. You could honestly use any sandwich type cookie! You could even use regular Oreos, vanilla sandwich cookies or peanut butter sandwich cookies!

  4. Annie NotOkay

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

  5. 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 πŸ™‚

    1. You can make them up to 2 days ahead! And in an airtight container they will be good for up to 5 days!

  6. Diane @ Me, Him And The Cats

    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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. just made these and waiting for them to cool now! i’m in mexico and couldnt find white chocolate or golden oreos…so I used regular chocolate sandwhich cookies and cookies n cream hershey bars. my bars are less pretty than yours, but thats not making me any less excited to dig into them!

  10. 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 serve to my co-workers,of course).

    They were a hit and a great way to cap off the week ! The best thing was how easy they were to make .

    Thanks for the idea, Keep up the great work!

    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.

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

    1. Yes! You could definitely use white chocolate chips! I don’t think it would be necessary to chop them any further πŸ™‚

  13. 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!

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

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