Pin # 44: Dark Chocolate No Bakes! Wow!

no bake cookies

I love No Bake Cookies and so does my husband!  Since we’ve been doing the “healthy eating” thing, I haven’t made any desserts because we would eat it all within one day!

My problem was solved recently when one of my neighbors needed a treat for a recent good deed!


Ok, here’s the story even though I was really embarrassed!

We’ve lived in our house for 20 years but the alarm system was only in working order for about 5 of those years.  The panels and keyboard were still in the house but ignored since they don’t work. (Or so we thought)

As I was doing laundry this week, I hung a dress on the panel which includes a panic button and, wouldn’t you know it, the alarm started blaring!

I ran to the keyboard by the front door to punch in the 4 digit code but I couldn’t remember even one digit!  It’s been 15 years!  I called my husband and left a voicemail.  I looked through our “home” file to find a code with no luck!

It finally stopped blaring by itself but the red light was still on which meant I was trapped in my house!  I tried a few codes that seemed familiar but the red light remained.  To make matters worse, the alarm started again after I tried a 2nd code on the keypad!

I decided I better go outside to make sure my neighbors knew I was OK and as I opened the door I startled a fairly large firefighter.  I basically scared the poor guy to death! My sweet neighbor across the street called the fire department when he thought he saw smoke coming from behind my house.  (just steam from the dryer vent due to the humidity)

To make an already long story short, my husband called just as I was scaring the firefighter and supplied the 4 digit code!  He obviously has a much better memory than me!

So, I really needed to repay my neighbor for looking out for me and these dark chocolate no bake cookies was a recent pin that I was dying to try!  They also included coconut and walnuts and were really yummy!  I kept a few for my husband and I (which we ate in one day), gave some to my sweet neighbor, and sent the remainder to work with my husband the next day!  (He did confess that he ate more at work.  He couldn’t help himself.  They are that good!)

I probably should have made some for that poor firefighter too!
