No-bake cookies are a simple pleasure. They take no more than five minutes of active time and can be made during a commercial break. Let them firm up for the next twenty minutes, then walk into the kitchen and enjoy one of your sweet little treats.
I decided to doll up the classic no-bake recipe with the addition of Biscoff, a creamy cookie spread imported from Belgium. Biscoff is a highly addictive substance, so consider yourself warned. The reason for sharing this recipe today? Well. Husband and I booked tickets to Belgium yesterday and we had to celebrate with an appropriate treat! Sure, he may have preferred Belgian beer or chocolate, but for my effort, it’s a Biscoff celebration. I might have to sneak over to the Biscoff factory to see if I can get my hands on some of the “good stuff” while Husband is off at the brewery…
Biscoff tastes somewhat like graham crackers, so I enhanced the flavor with cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla. For some extra fun, add shredded coconut.
Enjoy these easy little morsels of goodness, and please share any tips or links that can help us plan our Belgian vacation!
