I need some recipes for non-bake cookies or treats that my son's daycare can use for their summer camp. By non-bake I mean no stove or oven is used. I think a microwave oven would be okay.

They have to be peanut/nut/milk/egg free too. :)

Any ideas welcome. Let me know if you need more details.

I will look some more through my recipes but smores come to mind. Use graham wafers, milk free chocolate chips and marshmallows (we use no name ones). These could be microwaved to melt the chocolate.

How about Rice Crispie Treats? Marshmallows, margarine and cereal. I'm not sure if Rice Crispies are nut-free.

You're right - both smores and RK treats would work. And RKs are peanut/nut free. Thanks!

Other ideas still welcome. :)

I don't know if this is the kind of thing your thinking of but I've made my son a home made version of trail mix for a treat.
I mix together: safe chocolate chips, cheerios, Ocean Spray sweetened dried cranberries, raisins, Rold Gold tiny twists, and mini-marshmallows. He absolutely loves this.

That's also a great idea. The camp is called "Little Explorers" and they like to have the kids make the stuff, so this would be great. Thanks!

One of my recipe books changes up the traditional Rice Krispie Treats by adding in raisins or dried cranberries:

Fruit Rice Crisp Bars

1/4 cup dairy free margarine
Half pkg (8oz or 250g) marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins

Melt margarine in microwave - stir in marshmallows and vanilla, blend until smooth.
Add rice cereal and dried fruit; stir until well combined. Press into prepared baking dish. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Susan mentioned fruit shish kabobs in another thread. What if the adults prepped various fruits (washed and cut into bite size pieces) -- grapes, pineapple, apples, etc. and then provided the kids with the skewers (as long as the're old enough not to be inclinced to poke each other's eyes out :wink: ) and then they could prepare their own kabobs, picking the fruit they most like?

I'll post this - I'm not sure if Carob is milk free? Or if you can get a safe cocoa? (not dealing with a milk allergy here). My Mom used to let me make this recipe all the time when I was young. I'll put the original recipe which calls for butter - but you could obviously sub with a safe margarine.

I hope it's usable with some minor changes - but again I'm not that milk allergic aware :oops:

Carob Cookies
3/4 cup softened butter or safe margarine
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup carob or cocoa
Beat butter & sugar together until creamy. Stir in oats and carob. Shape into balls. (Optional roll in coconut meal - we NEVER did).

Thanks mygirlsyd - that sounds great!

Carob should be safe - did you know that it's a legume? (You learn something new every day, eh?) I'm guessing this is in powder form. I probably would go for safe cocoa (Fry's), just because I've never seen powdered carob.

And Susan - I did think of Jello. That could be fun to make jello squares, I think. Or maybe some kind of Martha Stewartesque jello sculpture. LOL.

Susan, my oldest is gonna love you! He's been agitating for us to try making marshmallows for the past few weeks. (Like we don't have enough to do -- we have to make homemade marshmallows!!!)

I'd forgotten about rock candy. We tried that about 2 years ago. It wasn't super successful but we did get some crystals out of it, and it would be fun to try again.

Thanks for all the others too. If any turn out good I will let you all know.

I simply googled "no bake dessert recipes" There were other websites but allrecipes is a great one.
Have fun and let us know how the recipes turn out.

Try these Mock English Muffins:

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup soy flour
4 TBS milled flax seed
4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sour cream
water, if needed

Directions:
Sift flours, baking powder, and flax seed together and stir into sour cream. If dough is too stiff, add cold water, a little bit at a time.

Allow dough to rest for about 15 minutes. The dough can either be rolled out and cut or shaped by hand. Make about 1/2 inch thick and about 4 inches in diameter. Place 2 pieces of dough on top of each other on a non-stick or sprayed cookie sheet. (This makes them easier to split). Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-18 minutes.

For variety you can add cinnamon and raisins, grated cheese, or a little brown sugar or honey tor a sweeter bun. May be frozen and toasted. Also great for sandwiches and with dinner in place of bread or rolls.
