I love this recipe. I use to make them all the time and lost the recipe. Off course they name I had for them was mud pies. lol I went crazy one year and made all different kinds. Peanut butter, banana, rum, mint, added pecans and walnut ones too. It's unlimited this cookie.

I must have done something wrong because these cookies were not really cookies at all or even brownie like. I (the health nut) didn't eat them, and my sugar-addicted family didn't like them either. There was "no there there." They weren't gooey and sticky, they looked like granola and tasted like cardboard. I don't think I did anything wrong wrong -- perhaps I didn't boil the sugar-butter mix long enough. I didn't have walnuts but that shouldn't have rendered the recipe inedible. My family suggested I throw them in the freezer to firm them up, and there they sit, three days later!

This is a healthier version of my families favorite no-bake cookies. It tastes kinda like an Almond Joy dark chocolate candy bar. If I make it again, I'll put in more coconut (this recipe just has a hint of it) and more chopped walnuts.

These delicious cookies were a very easy way to satisfy any sweet tooth. We may, however, rolled more cookies directly into our mouths, rather than for the cookie jar...

The 2 min of boiling is key. Too long and you've got crumbly cookies, too short and they don't set up very well. I start my 2 min. when there is a good boil on the side of the pan but not quite the whole pan in a roiling boil. I stir the entire time the sugar and butter is melting. The more coconut the better. For sure my favorite No Bake Cookies!

This is a great no bake cookie variation. I cut down the sugar by 1/4 c, doubled the amount of walnuts and coconut (after reading the reviews), and also added about 1 c of mini marshmallows (marshmallow creme is my fav part of mississippi mud). I decided to make these into bars instead of drop cookies so i lined my 8 x 8 pan with plastic wrap, spray it with non-stick, and spread it out. Put them in the freezer for an hour to hurry up the set up.

This is a very quick and easy, one-pot recipe, perfect for whipping up some treats in a hurry. I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies were a too sweet to my taste. I may put in less sugar and up the nuts and coconut next time.

I was happy to find this recipe, these treats go by so many different names. I removed the nuts from it and I found that it had a LITTLE too much sugar. Next time, I'll use less. All and all I'll keep this recipe on record.
