  5. What a smart idea, Sandy! I mean, chocolate, pumpkin, and no-bake…my BFFs! pinned!

  6. I was really excited about these, but when I made them they turned out very mushy and did not set properly. Googling the issue (for regular no bakes), others advise boiling the sugar mixture for ~3 minutes. I’m not sure if that would have solved the problem, but I ended up putting mine in the oven for a bit. Baked no-bakes are a bit strange– the flavor is good but the texture is off. I doubt I will try this recipe again.
