If you’re looking for a twist on the old-fashioned favorite no-bake cookie why not try these White Chocolate No-Bake Cookies? They’re so tasty even the people who don’t like white chocolate will enjoy them!

No Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookie Recipe
That’s RIGHT these cookies don’t have any chunky or creamy peanut butter in them. Or for that fact, there are NO nut butters whatsoever. They depend on marshmallows melted together with butter and white chocolate to hold everything together. You’ll love these nut-free no-bakes!
What else isn’t in these cookies?
By the way, they’re egg free too. I know that seems wrong considering they use marshmallows but MOST commercial marshmallows no longer use egg whites in them so they are egg free! Be sure to check your bag of marshmallows to make sure yours are egg free.
They also do not have rice Krispies, the texture inside comes from shredded coconut and rolled oats. No brown sugar either, the sweetness is only from marshmallows and white chocolate chips.
If you need a butter-free cookie recipe try these oatmeal cookies without butter!
So what do they have in them??
Ingredients for White Chocolate No-Bake Cookies:
- Pinch of salt if the butter is unsalted
- White chocolate chips
- Rolled Oats
- Shredded coconut
About the ingredients
Don’t substitute margarine for the butter, it’s too watery, and may ruin your cookies. You can use salted or unsalted butter if using unsalted add a pinch of salt.
You can use instant oats, quick oats, regular oatmeal, or thick-rolled old-fashioned oats in this recipe. Just realize that each type of rolled oats will produce a slightly different version of the cookie. The taste will be the same, the texture will change with each variation.
Do NOT use steel-cut oats and while they make a fine hot cereal but they don’t work in this recipe.
If you ONLY have mini marshmallows you can use mini marshmallows instead. Generally speaking, you can sub minis for regulars on a 1:10 conversion. 10 mini marshmallows equal 1 large marshmallow.
Making the cookies
This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies if you use a Tablespoon to scoop them up. They can be made as big or small as you like though so really the amount you make is up to you.
Once the cookies are cooling in the fridge they can stay there until set. They never get crispy or snappy so what you’re looking for is a set cookie that is no longer soft and gushy. They will peel off the parchment paper easily when they’re set as well.
Store them in an airtight container in the fridge. If you don’t store them in the fridge they’ll kind of revert to softer versions of themselves.
