Show & Tell & No Bake Cookies

Show & Tell Tuesday - late to the party...
Since we are moving, and I'm sorta over "this house" and really looking at new houses, and other houses and Pinterest houses etc, there won't be much to this post....
But currently, my favorite room in our house is the living room....
Boring I know, but the kitchen is small and outdated, the bathroom is small and outdated and our master is smaller and has a huge bed in it....so the living room it is!

These pix are from our house listing. Because I forgot about this post, and this is what I could come up with!  But hey, it captures my living room at it's absolute cleanest!!
Linking up with Andrea for Show & Tell

And now my recipe.....
In yesterday's post, I mentioned that I made no bake cookies that I had seen on the food network earlier that day. They looked delicious on TV so I googled the recipe, and headed to the kitchen because I knew I had all the ingredients...or so I thought..
So here is my version of these delicious cookies (the red),
courtesy of Mrs. Nancy Fuller from Farmhouse Rules.
What you need:
3 cups quick-cooking oats
(I used old fashioned)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
(I used one cup of milk chocolate chips)
1/2 cup toffee bits, plus more for sprinkling
(I used butterscotch chips)
2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
(I used regular salted butter)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
*So I pretty much had the ingredients to make it with a few minor tweaks and they were delicious....I eliminated the salt because I used salted butter as well*
What you do:
Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Combine the oats, peanut butter, bitter and semisweet chocolate chips, toffee bits, butter and salt in a medium saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the chocolate chips melt, 3 to 5 minutes.
Scoop heaping tablespoons of batter onto the baking sheet and sprinkle each cookie with extra toffee bits.
Freeze for 15 minutes before serving.
The cookies can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for 1 week
These are quite delicious! And can be modified to your liking very easily.
