Why did my no bake cookies not set?
If your no bake cookies didn’t set completely, you probably did not boil the mixture long enough. However, you do not want to rush this process or cook it too long.
How long are no bake cookies good for?
You can keep no bake cookies room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. This makes them the perfect cookie to keep on hand for a little snack!
How long does it take no bake cookies to firm up?
It takes about 20 – 30 minutes for no bake cookies to firm up. If you can’t wait that long and want to eat them gooey, that’s fine too! 😉
My husband LOVES no bake cookies! It’s one of the only cookies he will actually ask me to make.
I love that they are easy, simple, and I have all of the ingredients already in the pantry most of the time!
