Butterbeer No Bake Cookie Ingredients
This no-bake cookie recipe uses butterscotch pudding, butter flavor, and cream soda to help bring that butterbeer flavor to life!
Like most no-bake cookies, the base of the recipe is sugar, butter, and oatmeal. However, this recipe is nut free and uses a mix of powdered milk and pudding mix to hold them together.
Want to add a little crunch to your cookies? I highly recommend topping them with toffee bits. And Lightning Bolt Sprinkles for a true Harry Potter vibe!
This Butterbeer No Bake Cookie recipe is super easy to make! You’ll need a large saucepan, wax or parchment paper, and a mixing spoon. I also like to use a medium cookie scoop for evenly sized cookies.
How To Make Them
- Melt & Boil: The sugar, cream soda, and butter will need to melt and come to a rolling boil.
- Combine: After boiling, remove from heat and stir in the oatmeal, pudding mix, powdered milk, and butter flavoring.
- Drop: Place scoops of the cookie mixture out on parchment paper and allow to harden for at least one hour.
Expert Tip: Try to avoid making no-bake cookies when it’s really humid or raining as it makes it hard for them to fully set. If you can’t avoid the weather, then place your cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet in the refrigerator to help them set.
