Here’s a no-bake cookie recipe that takes very little time to make and even less time to eat.  In fact, they’re so simple to make, even the kids can join in the holiday cooking festivities.


  • 12 oz. white candy coating, chopped
  • Green paste food coloring
  • 22 peanut-butter-filled oblong sandwich cookies
  • 11 miniature Tootsie rolls, cut in half lengthwise


Place the candy coating into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the candy on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir. If the candy is not completely melted and smooth, continue heating at 30 second intervals, stirring after each time until melted and smooth. Add enough green paste food coloring to reach the desired color.

Dip each peanut butter cookie into the green frosting until completely coated, letting any excess drip back into the bowl. Place the coated cookies on wax paper. Press half of a Tootsie roll into the top of each cookie to form a nail. Let the cookies stand for 15 minutes or until the coating has hardened.

Makes 22 cookies.
