Unbaked Fudge Cookies

Unbaked Fudge Cookies

As a kid my mom made this recipe with 3 cups of white sugar, 1/2 cup butter, cocoa, milk and peanut butter. We called them, Yum, Yums.  I have continued to make this recipe but with healthier ingredients. When a chocolate craving hits, this is our family’s “go to” recipe. Unbaked Fudge Cookies are super easy to make and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate chips, we used Enjoy Life brand
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, we use extra-crunchy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats

Directions

In a large saucepan, combine chocolate chips, coconut sugar and coconut milk. On low heat, allow chocolate to melt while stirring every few minutes. Keep a close watch on the mixture making sure it doesn't burn. When chocolate is completely melted, remove from heat. Add vanilla and peanut butter, stir to combine. Fold oats into mixture and stir to well.

Using a tablespoon, drop cookies onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and shape into irregular balls. Allow to cool completely before placing in a container with lid. Note: Cookies will continue to get firm after being refrigerated. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.

TIP Mixture can also be added to a cake pan. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray and spread evenly, cool to room temperature and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Cut into small squares before serving.

    Hi,

    In the directions it says to add vanilla. However, vanilla is not listed in the ingredients. Are we to add vanilla, if yes, how much. Thanks so much!! Love your site!! 🙂

    These are very good, although I have to admit I didn't actually follow the directions. I used agave instead of honey, I mixed 60% cocoa chips with 100% unsweetened squares (agave's sweeter than honey but I didn't cut it back, so I like to think it evened out), and I used almond milk instead of coconut milk. I just couldn't get over the fat content of the coconut milk.

    Instead of chocolate chips, could cocoa and a fat (coconut oil perhaps) be substituted? If so, what would the measurements be?

      Beth, You would have to use chocolate chips or a baking chocolate bar for this recipe.

    I always hate peanut butter in no-bake cookies. I am not a PB hater, but it's not one of my fave's in desserts or cookies either. Is there another binder that would work besides PB?
