My favorite thing about these no-bake cookies is that they are delicious straight from the freezer. I love having treats on hand for an emergency chocolate craving. That said, they are also quick to make and only dirty one pot.
I make a similar no-bake chocolate cookie with coconut instead of peanut butter which I think I actually prefer. Of course I am biased, the coconut version holds a special spot in my heart as it comes from my childhood.
