No-Bake Chocolate Cow Pies Cookies Recipe

Last weekend I made a batch of these No-Bake Chocolate Cow Pies Cookies and the family devoured them quickly. I love no-bake cookie recipes especially at this time of the year when it is too hot in our home to be heating up the oven to make cookies. These cookies are really easy-to-prepare and taste delicious! I am not sure why they call them cow pies though! (hubby thinks it is because it looks like cow do-do).

No-Bake Chocolate Cow Pies Cookies Recipe

2 cups semi-sweet milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup slivered almonds, chopped

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. You will be dropping the prepared cookies onto the prepared baking sheets to firm up.

Using a double boiler, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips and vegetable shortening over hot water until creamy and smooth. You will need to constantly stir the mixture to prevent scorching. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the raisins and chopped almonds until they are blended into the chocolate mixture.

Use a large tablespoon and drop the cookie batter onto your prepared baking sheets in 2" diameter piles. Once the baking sheet is filled, place it into the refrigerator so that the cookies firm up. Once firm, remove them and place them into an airtight container or cookie jar for storage.
