Friday Favorites: No-Bake Recipes

I have not forgotten you, I promise.

My oven died an untimely death last Wednesday, so I have not baked a thing in over a week. The stove still works, but the one day I was planning to make a batch of doughnuts for this blog, we had an electrical surge and were left without power for fourteen hours. The universe just did not want me to bake this week. Ah, well.

It’s odd not being able to do something I’ve done nearly everyday for four years, but I’d be lying if I said I haven’t enjoyed having a little forced break from baking. I have gone to bed earlier, washed fewer dishes, and spent a little more time outside (but also watched most of Girls). I also bought myself a bunch of new clothes and went a little nuts and booked a trip to Maine with my little sister. I clearly need my oven back so I can do more than browse AirBNB to fill my time.

As I sit here waiting for a technician to arrive and replace the oven’s heating element, I’m ready to get back to work. He’s been here twice already, so let’s hope the third time’s the charm. In the meantime, here are a few recipes from my archives that don’t require a functioning oven!

Oreo Peanut Butter

Friday Favorites: No-Bake RecipesOreos and peanut butter are a match made in heaven! Here the chocolatey cookies and salty peanuts are blitzed together in the bowl of a food processor until nice and creamy. This stuff is excellent by itself on toast, but I highly recommend pairing it with marshmallow fluff for the best Fluffernutter sandwich of your life.

Funfetti Cookie Dough Truffles

Friday Favorites: No-Bake RecipesYou can’t bake cookies without an oven, but when you have truffles filled with sprinkle-studded cookie dough, who cares? These easy no-bake treats are made with an edible, eggless cookie dough that is formulated specifically to be eaten raw!

No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Friday Favorites: No-Bake RecipesWhile we’re on the subject of edible, eggless cookie dough, let me introduce you to your new favorite ice cream. As you might have guessed, it’s a combination of mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip cookie dough, and it doesn’t require an ice cream machine–the best of all worlds.

Ultimate Chocolate-Peanut Butter Snack Mix

Friday Favorites: No-Bake RecipesThis stuff gets me into trouble. There’s chocolate, peanut butter, cereal, candy, a delectable confectioner’s sugar coating…let’s just say that when I start, I can’t stop.

Brownie Mix

Friday Favorites: No-Bake RecipesJust because you can’t actually bake my Cocoa Brownies yourself doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them to someone else! Just layer the dry ingredients in a jar, attach a card with instructions, and give it to someone you love. If you’re lucky, they’ll invite you over to share 😊

Have you made any of these recipes? Let me know in the comments or on Instagram @e2bakesbrooklyn.

Cross your fingers for my oven!
