These Espresso Walnut No Bake Cookies take me back to my childhood. When I was growing up No Bake Cookies were a staple in the house. At the very least, a couple times a month, out would come the peanut butter, oatmeal, and cocoa powder.

Waiting for them to set up was excruciating and I would sneak gooey pieces off the waxed paper whenever I could until I got a couple solid cookies and a cold glass of milk- oh heaven, they were soooo good.

I still love the original no bake cookies recipe and don't normally mess around with perfection but I felt like I could keep the original flavor and add a little something that would make it even more grown up- What's more grown up than coffee?  

I also love nuts and sneak them into many baked good recipes so in went those too.  I love how they turned out, and even the kids gobbled them up as usual, I hope when they are grown they too have fond memories of their mama making no bake cookies too.  Give this recipe a try, you won't regret it!
