I keep thinking that life will slow down a little and I can get back in the kitchen. Between moving and vacationing, I’ve definitely missed being in the kitchen! My vacation was a road trip – in a RV – around the Great Lakes area and up into Canada. RV kitchens are not full size kitchens, but after a few days I can’t resist and have to bake something anyway! =) I usually try to bake something with minimal ingredients. For some reason, no bake cookies kept popping up in my mind but I knew I couldn’t make no-bake cookies going down the road….and then I spotted a recipe for microwave no-bake cookies. Say what?!? Best idea ever! Dessert without heating up the kitchen – perfect for summer. And swapping out the peanut butter for Nutella pretty much makes these cookies irresistible! I may have eaten a couple (or 3) before they had even cooled enough to hold their shape ;). Enjoy!

If you have a chance, you should visit the 1000 Islands area on the US-Canada Border on the St. Lawrence River. It’s such a beautiful area. This is the view from the SkyDeck.

      Hi Alyssa,
      After you drop the cookies on the wax paper, just let them set until they firm up…and then eat them! =)
      Thanks for stopping by!
