No Bake Cookie Bars

I found something the other day, something that looked too tempting to resist. She called them no-bake cookie bars, sounded normal enough. Oh but these things are anything but normal. I made them – so simple, so quick, added some speculoos spread (everything is better with speculoos spread), cut one up and took a bite. Wow and yum. Major sugar rush – oh the white chocolate and the cookies and the speculoos. This one is too good to pass up, especially when covered in chocolate. Thank you Cookies & Cups! Ready, set, go:


Here’s what you need:

  • about 30 crushed vanilla sandwich cookies
  • 300g chopped white chocolate
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup speculoos spread

Here’s what you do:

  1. Melt white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk together over medium heat.
  2. Stir in crushed cookies.
  3. Spread into baking paper lined square pan (preferable 9×9 but it depends on how thick you like your cookie bars)
  4. Press mini chocolate chips into dough.
  5. Warm speculoos spread in the microwave for 20 seconds. Drizzle over cookie bars.
  6. Refrigerate. Find some kind of distraction to keep you from dipping into the bars before they’ve chilled (like giant cup of tea)
  7. Cut and enjoy =)

    My mom is going to pick up some speculoos spread for me when she goes to Boston! This recipe looks so decadent.

    Is that a tube of sweetened condensed milk? I find it interesting when packaging is different in different countries…I always associate condensed milk with a can!

      We can get it in a tube or a can. What I love about the tube is that it’s sold like a sports drink, with a guy on a mountain bike shooting some into his mouth after a long ride =p (that and it’s easy to use some and seal afterwards, unlike the can) Can’t wait to hear what you think about speculoos!

        LOL, do people actually use it as a post-workout snack??

        I’ve not seen it, but I have seen people just eating it from the tube as if it were normal…
