No Bake Butterscotch Cookies Ingredients Needed:



Evaporated Milk

Instant Butterscotch Pudding

Quick Cooking Oats


Heath toffee Bits

The toffee bits are made by Hershey and found in the baking isle. We have a few recipes that include these delicious toffee bits and we really enjoy cooking with them. They have a great flavor and are delicious! You could easily use other nuts in this recipe too, but the pecans and toffee go really well together. If you can’t do nuts simply leave them out.

Common Questions About No Bake Cookies:

Why didn’t my cookies set up? The main reason why no bake cookies don’t set up is because the mixture wasn’t brought to a roiling boil. Make sure you bring the mixture to a BOIL. If you don’t do this, the cookies can also be gooey. So definitely make sure you do this step.

How long do these cookies stay fresh? No bake cookies stored in an air tight container can stay fresh up to 2 weeks! You can refrigerate if you desire.

How long does it take them to harden? They should harden in 20-30 minutes at room temperature. You can put them in the fridge if you desire.
