he Secret to Making the Perfect Chocolate and Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
Chocolate and Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookie Recipe
I have been making these cookies for many years and have seen and followed a variety of recipes. Sometimes they turned out dry, sometimes they didn’t set up at all, and other times they were the so delicious that they never made it to the cookie jar!
The two biggest secrets to make sure that these cookies are award winning every time is all about the timing. First of all you will see many recipes that calls for you to boil the mixture from anywhere from 1-3 minutes. They don’t tell you that you should start timing the boil when it is at a full and rapid boil, not when you first start to see bubbles. We NEVER go over 1 minute and 15 seconds when boiling, otherwise you end up with too dry of a mixture that results in crumbling cookies.
The second secret may seem silly, but it holds true every time – Do not make these cookies when it is raining outside. The change in the atmosphere does something that causes the cookie mixture to fail to set properly. Sounds crazy, but don’t risk it.
