Biscoff No Bake Cookies

These Biscoff No Bake Cookies are kid-friendly and adult friendly, kinda like miniature golf. (Story to come—I’ll bring it all full circle.)

Biscoff No Bake Cookies

The best part of these is the…drumroll please…Biscoff cookie spread! Have you ever had Biscoff cookies? They’re TO DIE FOR. Biscoff cookies are given out on some airlines, and they’re crunchy, brown sugary, and a little cinnamony.

Next order of business: Biscoff makes cookie spread! Genius. What is cookie spread, you ask? It’s a spread that’s the consistency of peanut butter but made out of cookies. Definitely a win-win, here. If you haven’t had Biscoff cookie spread, please, please, pleeeeease remedy this.

Second best part of these cookies is that they’re no bake. Read: You can whip these babies up ASAP.

So why is miniature golf kid friendly and adult friendly, you ask? Well, have you gone miniature golfing lately?

I’ve been a few times, but mostly when I was younger. Ryan and I have never gone just the two of us since we’ve been married. I guess it seems a little embarrassing to me, since it’s maybe more of a family activity or little kid thing?

Well, there’s a golf place nearby, and Ryan convinced me to go last night for a random, fun Wednesday night outing. I’ll admit that I was still embarrassed having to walk past lots of actual, non-miniature golfers taking real swings and using real golf thingies (I’m very up to date on golf lingo, I know). Aside from the initial embarrassment, it was fun.

After we finished our 18-hole round, we realized there was a second course. We felt a little cheated because we were not told of this second course option. So we decided to just head on over and go through that course, as well. At this point, no one was on the course with us, so we had the whole place to ourselves. We soon discovered that the second round of miniature golf is nowhere near as competitive/exciting/fun as the first round. To spice things up, I suggested we play what I will call “speed golf.” The rules of speed golf are as follows: Get your golf ball in the hole first. And yes, feel free to hit your opponent’s ball out of the way to make it harder for them. We regressed quite a few years on that golf course. By the end, I was just tossing my ball down the green like a bowling ball and kicking Ryan’s ball out of the way. We think we’re pretty funny and cool. I was also semi-nervously waiting to see if we would get kicked out, but we were left to our own devices.

Sometimes it’s fun to regress and be a kid again.

Biscoff No Bake Cookies

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1/2 cup milk (I used whole milk)
1/2 cup Biscoff cookie spread (crunchy or creamy, I’ve used both!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups quick oats (I recommend instant or quick oats for a better texture, but I have used old-fashioned oats, and the cookies are still good)

Directions

Line two cookie sheets with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, butter, and milk in a medium-to-large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. When the mixture begins to boil, stop stirring and let it cook for 45 seconds. Remove from heat. Stir in Biscoff cookie spread and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in oats until well combined.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets. Let the cookies stand for a few minutes until they are set. Store leftover cookies in the refrigerator.

    You’re so fun…I can totally picture that 2nd round of golf! Maybe I’ll convince Kevin to take me on a date mini-golfing. We’ve only been once and it was when I had Elisa in a front carrier. AS IF that was fair?!

    PS I am thrilled about this recipe. You know I love no bakes.

      Wow, that in NO WAY was a fair match. (I’m guessing he won?)

      I know you love no bakes, Tess! They are so tasty and easy!

    Oooh, this sounds so delicious! I need to go get me some of that Biscoff spread ASAP! And, I totally should go play some mini-golf before it gets too cold to. 🙂

      Sharon, yes, you should definitely try the Biscoff spread and play some mini-golf (if there’s one nearby…)!
