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.

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Cookies

As I may have mentioned before, we have two long-haired cats. They’re adorable, cuddly, and (mostly) sweet putter tats. But they’re long-haired. Which is basically a nightmare to vacuum/clean/keep from looking mangy. Their long hair also makes them look about 10 pounds heavier than they really are, which in cat-weight is pretty darn hefty looking.

Over the past few months, we’ve toyed with the idea of getting them shaved. I know, I know. It will make them look like weird, little rats, but the benefit of no hair is enticing. But before we could make a final decision on this, the hubs thought he could double as a barber and decided to start chopping their hair off with some scissors. Needless to say, they now have wildly uneven coats of hair. Can’t decide which is preferable: shaved rat cats or Homemade Hairstyles by Hubs.

Here’s a recipe that doesn’t involve scissors or cats. In fact, it’s so easy that it doesn’t even involve your stove. That’s right, a no-bake beauty with only three ingredients.

I am forever indebted to Tess for introducing me to these devilishly easy “cookies.” They’re the perfect combination of salty and sweet, and who can resist the peanut butter/chocolate combo? (No one in their right mind, that’s who.)

I list measurements in the recipe, but feel free to adapt to however many you want or need at the moment. These are simple, and I’d venture to say a definite staple for your recipe box.

Let the chocolate harden up for at least 20 minutes or else you may notice an embarrassing chocolate stain on your face a few hours later when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror.
