No-Bake Marshmallow-Butterscotch-Chex Cookies

Created January 10, 2017
This five ingredient dessert is easy to make and easy to eat. Try it with whichever Chex cereal you have on hand!

No-bake cookies are my secret weapon. Have a sweet tooth craving? Need treats to serve in a hurry? Looking for a fun way to entertain your kids? No-bake cookies to the rescue! They couldn’t be easier or faster, and it’s likely you already have the ingredients in your pantry.

These particular no-bake cookies are filled with marshmallows, peanuts, and Chex cereal, and are held together by an irresistible butterscotch and peanut butter coating. You’ll go crazy for the flavor combination, and the fact that they take just 10 minutes to make!

These cookies require just 5 ingredients: butterscotch chips, marshmallows, peanuts, peanut butter and Chex cereal. I used Wheat Chex, but really any variety of Chex will work. Feel free to use what your family likes!


First combine the Chex cereal, marshmallows and peanuts in a large bowl. Then microwave the butterscotch chips and peanut butter in short intervals until melted and smooth.


Pour the butterscotch mixture over the cereal mixture and stir until well combined.


Drop by the spoonful onto either wax or parchment paper and let sit until cookies are firm, about 15 to 20 minutes.


Then, enjoy, ideally with a tall, cold glass of milk!
