Mud Pies | Taste and Tell
I saw these cookies on Janet’s blog – Janet is Hungry – back in October. I actually made them a couple of days after seeing her post, but I am just now getting around to posting about them!!

I have made a similar cookie to these in the past. Janet calls them Mud Pies, but I grew up knowing them as no-bake cookies. I know there are several versions out there, and the one I am most familiar with has peanut butter added as well, but Janet’s version sounded delicious so I gave them a try.

They were delicious!! What’s not to love about chocolate, coconut and oats all rolled together?? I’m really glad I saw Janet’s post!!

    I have a recipe just like this that my grandma used to make that are fabulous – although mine calls for condensed milk. So good! They are really good straight out of the freezer too.

    My Mom used to make these when we were kids; so delicious! The only difference was she used butter instead of Shortening….I think I prefer butter but either way they melt in your mouth!

  11. My mother made these cookies … never called them mud pies…does anyone out there have another name for them ? Their grandmother would have called them … many moons ago … never had them with peanut butter …rather than coconut … the coconut is the the perfect recipe … !! Anywho…they are deliciousr
