With small substitution, you can turn No Bake Cookies into No Bake French Vanilla Cappuccino Cookies.

One day last year, I wanted to make No Bake Cookies, but I didn’t have enough sugar for the recipe I had. After looking online, I considered just cutting the recipe in half until my eyes rested on the cappuccino powder. With all the sugar in cappuccino powder, I figured it would make a decent substitute for the missing sugar.

I wound up with a no bake I liked even better than the original.

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  2. 1/2 cup French vanilla cappuccino powder
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  4. 1/2 cup milk
  5. 1/2 cup butter
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  7. 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  8. 3 cups quick oats
Instructions
  1. In saucepan, combine sugar, cappuccino powder, cocoa, milk and butter.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches a rolling boil. Stop stirring and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla, peanut butter and oats. Stir well.
  4. Use a spoon to drop cookies onto parchment or waxed paper.
  5. Let cool completely.
Notes
  1. You can make the cookies any size you like. The larger the cookie, the more time it takes to cool and set up. Sometimes I make them bite size and freeze them, eating just one from time to time when I'm craving chocolate and peanut butter.
  2. You can use any flavor of cappuccino powder. Just make sure it would taste good with cocoa and peanut butter.

Another family favorite. No bake cookies are quick, easy and yummy! This was one of my daughter’s favorite cookies as a child.

They’re also fantastic in ice cream and freeze well. When I’m in a cookie making mood, this is one of the first recipes I make. For most of last year, I had No Bake Cookies in the freezer because every time I’d run out or give them away to the kids, I’d make more.

I think I feel a cookie making mood coming on…
