No Bake M&M Peanut Butter Delights

Want to make an easy, quick dessert? Then look no further because these No Bake M&M Peanut Butter Delights are just what you are looking for!

No BAKE M&M Peanut Butter Delights | thebittersideofsweet.comWhen I was a kid I remembered we used to always make no bake peanut butter delights. We would line the wax paper on the counter tops and mix up all of the ingredients in the big pot on the stove and then we would drop them on the wax paper and allow them to cool. It was hard waiting for these to set. When my kids had snow days this week, I set out to make an easy treat to have for them. Something I had all ofΒ the ingredients for and something that would not take too much effort. So glad I did! Because this brought back my childhood memories as I made some with my own children!

No BAKE M&M Peanut Butter Delights | thebittersideofsweet.comI did have to tweak the original recipe because there was one ingredient I didn’t have. Cocoa powder! I had the container in my baking cabinet and when I pulled it out and opened it up, empty! Completely empty! So I had to figure out a way to add the chocolate and then my eyes landed on my almond bark. I have a package of it in my cabinet and thought that it could work. It did!! Also to bump up the flavor of the peanut butter I added peanut butter M&M’s. So glad I did that as well. It added a little color to them which made them just right! ENJOY!!

    I have never tried a no bake cookie but am really intrigued. I wonder if they would hold up in the mail too? Always looking for new cookies to send to our nephews in college.

      Hi Denise, I really don’t think these would hold up well in the mail. I do have some other ones that would like Apricot Almond Butterscotch Cookies, Coconut Crinkle Cookies or Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies!
