Grandma's Grand Goodies

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

Our family fell in love with these no-bake cookies many summers ago when my mom (grandma to my kiddos) brought them to share at a waterslide park during a family reunion. She didn't have a name for them, so we named them Grandma's Grand Goodies! Unlike other no-bakes, these have a delicious butterscotch flavor, and taste amazing all summer long. We make them with a mini cookie scoop so you can eat one in a single bite. We also love them cold, so after eating a bunch warm, will refrigerate the rest. So easy to make, your kiddos can easily help!
