No bake cookies cause me to reminisce. The first time I made no bake cookies was when I was in mini 4-H. I’m fairly certain I entered those cookies in the county fair the 3 years I was in mini 4-H. I think I mixed it up one year by using chunky peanut butter instead of creamy. But when something is a sure thing you go with it, especially if you’re only getting a participation ribbon.
I moved on to bigger and better things when I hit the big leagues– regular 4-H when I turned 8. I won Grand Champion overall at my county fair and went to the state fair twice for cake decorating, earning special merit (top honors) both times. I came a long way from no bake cookies.
I broke out the no bake cookie recipe last weekend. We were heading to a pool party, and I didn’t have time to make something elaborate. So I channeled my inner 7 year old and whipped up my participation ribbon winning cookies.
