No-Bake Biscoff Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Traditional no-bake cookies are one of my husband's favorites (recipe here), but I have been on the search for a great peanut-free version of these cookies that would be school friendly, and I finally found one! Using Biscoff spread instead of peanut butter is a great alternative. The cookies have a great flavor and I happen to like these better because they are not quite as sweet (but trust me, they are still plenty sweet!). You must try these if you like no-bake cookies!

No-Bake Biscoff Chocolate Chunk Cookies
(recipe adapted from Picky Palate)
Makes about 40 cookies

8 T unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup Biscoff (can use peanut butter)
3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup marshmallow bits (I used mini marshmallows that I chopped)
1 3/4 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chunks
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar and heavy cream. Heat, stirring frequently, and bring to a boil. Let boil for 2 minutes while stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Stir in the biscoff until melted and smooth. Add the oats and marshmallows, stir well.
Add the chocolate chunks and only stir a few times so all of the chocolate doesn't melt (or you can keep stirring, if you like the chocolate to be completely melted).
Use a cookie scoop to scoop cookies onto wax or parchment paper. Let set for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy!
