You guys. You all know the magic of the no bake cookie. You know that it’s peanut butter and chocolate and oatmeal and it’s 10 minutes and it’s practically a gift from Zeus. You know it, I know it, we all know it.
But I have this little problem with no bakes, and it’s my guess that I’m not alone. My issue is that I can’t eat just one, or just 3 even because much like me with an ice cream sandwich, it’s there one second and gone the next, and I feel terribly unfulfilled.
So I thought long and hard about how I could make myself feel like 1 serving was enough. (I know that’s a joke on it’s own, when have I ever eaten 1 of anything?) It’s clear they had to be more dense, and thicker, and bigger. While you can make them thicker it’s really hard to make a no bake bigger because they are just going to fall apart.
Cue the oatmeal fudge. Oh lord. By using real chocolate (as opposed to just cocoa powder) the texture is so dense and fudgy and amazing. Problem solved, a little. Because now I only need like 4 of these instead of 10.
