No Bake Cookies

I've never made No Bake Cookies. I was always curious about them but I could never bring myself to make them because of the peanut butter. I don't know what's my problem. I love peanut butter but for some reason I do not like peanut butter in desserts. Alex, on the other hand, loves peanut butter in desserts. He jumps for joy any time I make a peanut butter cookie so these cookies are for him. I took one bite and the peanut butter taste was too much for me. Shame too, because the cookies had a great fudge-like texture.
