It seems that lately I’ve been inundating you lovely readers with an abundance of no-bake recipes. My only reasoning is that it has been yet another long, hot summer, and baking has not been high on my list of desired activities. I will get the oven turned on again soon, though. Fall may actually be on its way. In the meantime, here’s another no-baker.
I was flipping through Betty Crocker’s Cookie Book in an effort to find something quick to make for dessert when I happened upon this recipe. It did prove to be extremely easy. So much so, that I made it simultaneously with our dinner.
The bottom layer of this dessert is extremely good. In fact, I’m thinking that I may use it for something else in the future. A chocolate-nut crust would be a good foundation for many a good thing, but I’m thinking cheesecake.
Overall, we were lukewarm about these bars. Strangely enough, Quinn and I both had the thought that they taste like Christmas. Now, what that means exactly, I’m not sure. I’m just throwing that out there.
I would like to make them again with a bit less sugar or with something to tame the sugar a bit. Mixing some cream cheese into the filling would definitely be an idea worth trying. If you make them as written, cut them into very small bars. A little of these goes a long way.
