How about a cookie recipe today? I've got a cookie creation for you that comes courtesy of the imagination of a certain six year old little boy. My son loves no-bake cookies. He also loves helping me in the kitchen and experimenting with his own "ingredients".
These ingredients can range from flour and sugar, to say...dirt...or dog food.
Luckily his last idea involved something that's edible by humans - sprinkles and white chocolate; two more of his favorite things. We mixed the sprinkles into the cookies and had to put extra on top of course...just to make sure there was an adequate ratio of cookie to sprinkle.
These cookies turned out really good and disappeared in no time. The kid might be onto something here. Enjoy!
White Chocolate Sprinkle No-Bake Cookies
Yield: 12 cookies Printable Recipe
1/4 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups quick cooking oats
1-2 tablespoons multi-colored sprinkles
Place the butter, sugar, and milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to cook for 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and white chocolate chips. Stir until mixture is smooth and the chocolate has melted. Stir in the oats. Now mix in the sprinkles and gently stir to combine. If you stir too much the sprinkles will melt. Drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper, and top with additional sprinkles. Allow to cool before serving.
