Cookie Butter No-Bake Cookies (Nut-Free)

One thing I really miss about not having peanut butter in our house (because of my son's nut allergies) are the chocolate/peanut butter desserts. There is just something about that combination that calls my name. And one thing I always want to make are no-bake cookies that always call for peanut butter.

For some reason, it never occurred to me to substitute cookie butter for the peanut butter until my husband mentioned it. And while they may not taste exactly the same as the original, these cookies are still crazy addicting!
If you've never made no-bake cookies before, they are essentially one of the easiest cookies to make that result into a rich and decadent treat.

These are also perfect for summer because who wants to bake in this insane heat??
And if you want a real treat, stick the leftover cookies in the freezer. They freeze so well and have the best texture. They're the perfect treat to cool down with!
