Brenda’s No Bake Cookies with a Twist


With crushed Wicked Mix Spicy Original in place of crushed pecans, these cookies offer a delightful crunch and a hint of spice that will leave you craving more. 


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup Wicked Mix Spicy Original, slightly crushed


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Measure out all your ingredients before starting, as the process can move quickly once you begin cooking.

  2. Cook the Base: In a medium saucepan, combine the margarine, sugar, cocoa, and milk. Place over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Allow it to boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

  3. Combine Additional Ingredients: Remove the pan from heat. Immediately stir in the vanilla extract, quick oats, and crushed Wicked Mix Spicy Original. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture begins to thicken.

  4. Shape the Cookies: Drop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture onto a sheet of foil. Use a spoon or a small ice cream scoop to form uniform cookies.

  5. Cool and Set: Allow the cookies to cool at room temperature until they are firm and set. This usually takes about 30 minutes.

  6. Serve or Store: Once set, the cookies are ready to be served. Alternatively, they can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.

Brenda's No Bake Cookies with a Twist are perfect for those who enjoy a little heat with their sweet treats. The inclusion of Wicked Mix Spicy Original instead of pecans not only adds a unique flavor profile but also introduces a delightful crunch, making these cookies a surefire hit for any occasion.
