Farmhouse Rules’ Chocolate Toffee No-Bake Cookies

From the moment I watched Nancy Fuller make these cookiesย in her idyllic farmhouse kitchen I knew that I was going to replicate them in myย pretend farmhouse kitchen. No-bake cookies are a family favorite, and the toffee addition just seemed like a stroke of genius! Of course I also tend to gravitate towards treats that I can make with my kids. So even if my garden is in realityย a pool, and my cows and chickens are actually neighbors in my subdivision; by golly, I can eat like a fuller farmer! (I didn’t make that up, it’s the name of her blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

The original recipe can be found on FoodNetwork.com

As organic as possible:

3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits, plus more for sprinkling
2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Combine the oats, peanut butter, bitter and semisweet chocolate chips, toffee bits, butter and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the chocolate chips melt, 3 to 5 minutes.
Scoop heaping tablespoons of batter onto the baking sheet and sprinkle each cookie with extra toffee bits. Freeze for 15 minutes before serving. The cookies can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for 1 week.

    1. Yes! No added sugar (plenty of chocolate chips and toffee) and much less butter than traditional no-bakes makes it practically health food too! (That’s how I logic ๐Ÿ˜‰) Thank you Jasmine!

  1. Sorry, I am having a little chuckle here….stored in the refrigerator for 1 week….These sound so amazing, and I promise you, they wont last two days in my house (and trust me I will be the one to devour the most) Thanks for sharing Sadie ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Love the no bake cookies recipes especially in the summer! I have everything except for the toffee bits ๐Ÿ™‚ I better wait till others are visiting so I am not tempted! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadie !

    1. I understand completely about no bakes in the summer! It’s a really simple recipe but it definitely needs the toffee! There is not much sweet without it. Thank you Ruthie!

  3. Perfect little treats for this sweltering heat. Thanks Sadie for sharing this. Can I ask you what I can use instead of the toffee? I could easily just omit it altogether or perhaps up the quantity of the chocolate I guess….?

    1. Hmmm. Well I’d definitely add some granulated sugar or maybe substitute the bittersweet chocolate with milk chocolate because there is very little sweetness without the toffee. Maybe if you crushed hardened caramel candy, something comparable to Werther’s?

  4. I don’t know why but I always forget about no bakes! I’ve never made them, so whenever someone brings them around I have to eat a ton because they’re a special treat:) I’m going to have to try one of your recipes.
