No Bake Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookies!  So easy to make and they make for a delicious snack or dessert when you're craving cookies but don't want to turn on the oven! {gluten free}

I’m probably the last one to discover this, but can you believe that you can make cookies by just using the stove-top and refrigerator?!  I’m so impressed, haha!  And I’m also always the last one to get on any food trend, so it’s no surprise that it’s 2016 and I’m just now making no-bake cookies.  But, these days I’m hot, lazy, fat and craving all the sweets so these no-bake cookies kinda make perfect sense.

You can really make any variety of these, and I’ll probably trying out some different ones as the summer progresses, but you can’t lose with chocolate, peanut butter, pretzels, oats and coconut!  My friend Ashley made these awesome Peanut Butter Pretzels Honey Balls last week and I’ve been thinking about the flavor combination ever since!

To make these super easy, delicious cookies all you do is add your ingredients to a pot, melt, spoon onto parchment paper and then freeze or refrigerator until they harden up.  You do have to store them in the refrigerator because they melt pretty quickly, but you’ll probably want to eat them all before you leave the house anyway so it’s no big deal.  At least that was my experience :)

      How about I send you some cookies and you send me your candy bars?! Except my cookies would probably melt in the mail, ha!
