Ahhhhhh, summer! Finally summer! Swimming, flip flops, picnics, beach trips, barbecues…

And the sun.

The beautiful – but occasionally overwhelming – sun.

With everything there is to love about summer, there is one thing that can be a downside. Namely, who wants to run the oven when it’s already 90 degrees outside (and almost that INside)? Nobody! Until, that is, you get to craving something sweet and wonderful from the oven.


But don’t fret! OR sweat! Take a tip from your grandma. Or take a tip from OUR grandma! Whip up some no-bake goodies and enjoy the sweet without extra heat!

My Web Times has a collection of recipes we’re ready to try!

Perfect for those lazy summer weekends, no bake cookies are the best of the best when it comes to no bake desserts. These no bake cookie recipes have something for everyone — from peanut butter to chocolate and chocolate mint, from oats to caramel and almond butter.


It may be miserable outside but on a hot sleepless night, cold milk and a no bake turtle cookie works wonders!

They offer recipes for traditional chocolate no bakes, coconut lime drops, and the aforementioned turtles!

The great thing about no bake cookies is that they require just a handful of ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge and pantry — butter, milk, peanut butter, oats and cocoa are all you need.

And most are ready in a matter of minutes, with minimal cleanup! Now that’s our idea of win-win when it comes to baking!

Remember these cookies the next time you’ve got a major craving for something sweet and absolutely no desire to turn on the oven. They’ll cure any hankering you have, and you’ll only have one pot to clean.

You’ll also look like a major culinary rock star when you take them to your next potluck.
