Vanilla No Bake Cookies

Vanilla No Bake Cookies | #Vanilla #NoBake #Cookies #Moist_vanilla_cupcakes #Best_vanilla_cupcakes #Easy_vanilla_cupcakes #Homemade_vanilla_cupcakes #Cupcakes_recipes_vanilla #Fluffy_vanilla_cupcakes #Dessert_recipes #Cookie_desserts #Yummy_sweets #Monster_cookies #Baking_recipes_cookies #Cooking_recipes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used Rodelle Organic Baker's Extract)
  • 1 (3.4 ounce box) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling - just the dry mix
  • 3-1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Lay a long strip of foil on your counter, to drop your cookies on after they cook. In a medium sized pot, on the stovetop over medium heat, add the butter, milk and sugar. Stir mixture occasionally and bring it to a boil. Once mixture reaches a boil, set timer for 1-minute
  2. After 1-minute, remove the pot from the stove and stir in the vanilla extract, salt, and half of the oats. Slowly stir in the dry pudding mix into the pot. If you add it too quickly, it will start to cook and clump up. Once all of the pudding mix is mixed in, stir in the white chocolate and remaining oats. Stir until all ingredients are completely combined.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to drop desired sized cookies onto the strip of foil. Let cookies set and cool.

MISSISSIPPI MUD BARS

MISSISSIPPI MUD BARS | #Coca'colacake #Wowcakerecipe #Cocacolacake #Cocacolacake #Betterthanwinningthelotterycake #Grannycakerecipe12tomatoes #Missippimudcake #Mississippimudbrownies #Mississippimudcakeeasy #Rockyroadcake #Vintagerecipes #Mississippimudcakerecipe




Ingredients

  • BARS:
  • 1 1/3 cups (6.75 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (7.5 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (7.5 ounces) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1.5 ounces) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces, 16 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 10-ounce package mini marshmallows (4-5 cups)
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) chopped pecans, toasted (optional but delicious)
  • CHOCOLATE TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 ounce) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces, 4 tablespoons) butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet (half sheet pan, about 12X18 inches) with parchment and lightly grease with cooking spray. Alternately, you can line with foil and grease the foil or leave the pan unlined and grease the pan.
  2. For the bars, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa (sift the cocoa into the bowl using a fine mesh strainer if it is overly clumpy), baking soda and salt. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix together until combined (don't overmix; just whisk/stir until no dry streaks remain and ingredients are evenly combined).
  3. Spread the batter evenly in a thin layer in the prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the top is springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch closely so the thin bars don't overbake!
  4. Remove from the oven, sprinkle the top evenly with marshmallows, and bake for 3-5 minutes more until the marshmallows are softened.
  5. Sprinkle with pecans and let cool to room temperature before glazing.
  6. For the chocolate topping, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder (I sift it in to avoid clumps), milk, butter, and salt. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring or whisking constantly.
  7. Remove from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Thin with additional milk, if needed, until the mixture is thick but pourable and can easily be drizzled across the bars.
  8. Drizzle the glaze in a crisscross pattern across the bars. Serve the bars warm or at room temperature. They are easier to cut if they've been cooled completely.
