How to Make No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

You don’t even have to turn on the oven to make these delicious—and super-easy—chocolate treats.


  • Step 1: Melt some chocolate Melt a 12-ounce bag of chocolate chips with two tablespoons of butter on the stove or in a microwave.
  • TIP: Use any kind of chocolate you like—milk, white, semisweet, or bittersweet. For variety, make some batches with peanut-butter chips or butterscotch chips.
  • Step 2: Add filling While the melted chocolate is still hot, stir in a two-cup combination of any or all of the following: raisins, chopped nuts, coconut flakes, puffed rice, and crumbled cookies.
  • TIP: Save the crumbs at the bottom of your cookie jar for when you make these treats.
  • Step 3: Make clusters Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper.
  • Step 4: Let them set Chill them until they’re firm, about two hours. You'll get about 20 cookies per batch.
  • Step 5: Store properly Store in an airtight container.
  • FACT: Chocolate wasn't sold in chip form until 1939. Before then, chocolate bars came with a small chopping tool.
