Are you looking for a fool-proof no bake cookie recipe but you are tired of standing at the stove stirring the pot? Our Crock Pot No Bake Cookies are also stir free! Throw the ingredients in as directed, and let your slow cooker do the prep! Then scoop out your cookies like usual and you have the perfect on-the-go sweet treat all summer long!
Cris here. Truth be told, when Jif contacted me about their Jif To-Go products and campaign, I was so excited to be a part of it! Jif has been a family favorite since I was a kid, and it is the key ingredient to many of our tried and true family recipes including THE peanut butter cookies I am known for in my family. So when I got the craving for a great no bake cookie the other day, and I didn’t want to stand at the stove on a hot summer day, I naturally turned to my slow cooker (and my trusty Jif) and set out to make a version that could skip the stove. NOTE: I am being compensated by Jif for your participation in this campaign, but as always opinions and thoughts are all my own. I am part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.
Crock Pot No Bake Cookies
Now, making no-bakes in the slow cooker MAY sound easy… but starting out, I hit some hurdles. The first recipe I tried, turned out great appearance and taste-wise but had an off texture, so I went back to the drawing board. My second attempt produced a great texture and taste but melted too easily in your hands. Third time was the charm! Great consistency, texture and even an improvement on taste. Mommy score!
Perfect On the Go Snack
These cookies are just perfect to throw in a cooler bag along with your Jif To Go cups, pretzels and celery for all your snacking needs sweet and savory–while out and about this summer. We love the Jif To Go cups for a great snack that is both satisfying and filling and the cookies make for a great sweet treat!
Speaking of being out and about this summer, did you know that Jif sponsored the Kick It Tournament? Soccer fans loved that Christie Rampone, U.S. Captain of The Women’s National Team and mother of two, teamed up with Jif and the “Kick It” Tour for the program to help raise $25,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
