If there is one thing I don’t have a natural talent for it’s cooking. I’m married to someone who loves to cook and he’s from Pampanga, well known for its excellent and sumptuous dishes. Despite the lack of talent in this area I decided to try to make no-bake cookies and cream bars.
I’m not that bad, I can cook rice, fry eggs and the like. The one dish I can cook that my children love is macaroni soup. It’s a comfort food of sorts especially on days when they’re sick. Other than that I leave the cooking to hubby.
Since I joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I’ve tried to come up with a post everyday and no-bake desserts seemed like an interesting topic.
Thankfully, my first no-bake project was a success. With the help of a good friend (thank you for the use of your kitchen!) we made these delicious dessert bars. It’s super simple and fast to make.
What you’ll need:
12 packs (3/pack) of chocoate sandwich cookies (any brand will do)
1 bag of large marshmallows
5 tablespoons butter
The secret ingredient here is butter. This is what will make it easier to mix. Without it, it’ll be like trying to mix rubber!
Line a medium sized baking dish with aluminum foil. Put aside.
Crush the cookies in a large plastic bag with a rolling pin until it’s fairly broken up. Also try crushing the bag with your hands to get those big sized pieces you weren’t able to crush with the rolling pin.
Melt the marshmallows and butter in a large microwave-safe container for about 2 minutes. After it has melted immediately pour in the crushed cookies. Stir quickly and thoroughly then transfer to your baking dish lined with aluminum.
Let it cool for about 10 to 15 minutes. Cut the bars and you’re ready to serve!
