Store your No Bake Cookies in an airtight container so they don’t dry out. They will last about a week on the counter, a little longer in the fridge.
How do you fix no bake cookies that didn’t set up? If they don’t set, try placing them back in your pan and reheating them, bringing them to a boil until they reach 230°F.
It sounds deceptively simple, but if your cookies didn’t harden, it means you didn’t get to what is known in fudge-making as “the soft ball stage.” The last temperature that the sugar reaches is the indicator for how hard or soft your no-bake cookies will be.
If your cookie dough feels gooey and greasy because of too much butter, try adding more flour until it thickens. If chilling the dough doesn’t do the trick, double-check the recipe. It’s possible you didn’t put in enough flour. Keep adding flour little by little until the consistency improves.
Does peanut butter harden in the fridge?
Place your pan, sheet or plate inside the refrigerator or freezer. Place the platter in the freezer for an hour to create rock-hard peanut butter or store the plate in the refrigerator for 45 minutes for a firm to slightly hard consistency.
Why are my no bakes sticky?
The most common reason for gooey no bake cookies is not boiling the mixture for long enough. As explained above, your cookies will not hold together if the sugar doesn’t reach soft ball stage. If you have had problems with runny cookies in the past, try cooking the mixture for longer on the stovetop.
Step 6: Quickly Spoon Out Cookies
This is where you’ll want to be quick and spoon out cookies with a tablespoon, on to a sheet of aluminum foil. Leaving them in the hot pan will allow the cookies to continue to cook and harden, resulting in a very crumbly cookie.
