Classic No Bake Cookies With a Twist!

No Bake Cookie Bars

Here is an old fashioned recipe with a new twist… Classic No Bake Cookies made into bars!  My Mom made these no bake cookies a lot when I was growing up.  She liked this recipes because you don’t have to bake the cookies…just cook them on the stove and they are ready to either drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper (for cookies) or spread in a buttered pan for bars.  Their chocolaty goodness is hard to resist!
