No Bake Num Nums

It's a beautiful day in March! I'm enjoying tea on my patio with these delicious treats that bloggy buddy Lynn from Happier Than A Pig In Mud shared back around Christmas time.  I made them for my cookie tray and they were a big hit.  The vase was a wedding gift, back in 1970, and the hankie was my mom's.

You can add whatever seasonal sprinkles to them, and they're a quick and easy gift.  

Isn't my Belleek teacup so dainty?

This darling, crazed teapot was one that I bought here, but is from County Cork, Ireland, where my Dad's relatives came from.

This is a long ago cross stitch pillow cover I made.  

I have a cousin that loves doing genealogy and he sent me this picture of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, where my Great Great grandparents on my Dad's Mother's side, were married, on January 30, 1856.   My Great Great Grandmother was named Catherine Barry, like my spelling.  My Great Great Grandfather was named Dennis Driscoll.  She was 19 and he was 35!  They had 10 children.  

Yield: depends on how big you form them

These are yummy little treats and perfect for gifting!


  • 1 package white chocolate chips or 10-12 ounces of candy melts (I used 12 ounces of vanilla Almond Bark); Candiquik would work great too)

  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup rice krispie cereal
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • optional - sprinkles


  1. In a large bowl, melt the chips, candy melts or almond bark in microwave.
  2. Stir in peanut butter.
  3. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Drop by spoonful onto wax paper or parchment lined baking sheets. Top with sprinkles.
  5. Allow to firm up.

One last Birthday celebration with family members that couldn't come last week due to volleyball tournaments for Avery and pink eye for Ella.  We had dinner at their house and it was such a nice evening.  


  1. They look wonderful! I'll need to try them...
    Beautiful family!

  2. Tea on the patio looks inviting, Kitty! The cookie treats sound delicious and thank you for the recipe. I do love your Belleek teacup! I am so glad you enjoyed many birthday celebrations. Happy Monday!

  3. love your teapot and cup and those treats sound like they would be great to make with my granddaughters! Super easy and I can tell they are delicious! Glad the family was reunited and happy Ella doesn't have pink eye any longer, pink eye is no fun!

  4. Those treats look delicious, Kitty, and would be perfect in summer when it's too hot to turn on the oven. I love your pretty teapot with the crazing. And how lovely of your cousin to send the photo of that special church. I love family history!

  5. What a delightful sweet no bake treat! Your shamrock tea cup is so pretty, my granddaughter's birthday is March 17th so I am a big fan of shamrock things ☘️!
    How fun to have 2 birthday celebrations! I also have a cousin that researched our family tree and made us a chart that I framed and hung in my foyer, It traces my roots all the way back to the Mayflower and beyond! Isn't it wonderful to have a peek into your family's past? I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, we are in full Spring here with trees and flowers blooming!

  6. It's fun to spread out the birthday festivities!

    I'm admiring your pretty Belleek teacup. I'd love to add one to my collection.

  7. Love your sweet tea time table and treats for St. Patrick's Day, Kitty!!! I also love that pic of the church and the family lines info. Irish = ♥

    Thank you for the recipe - those look sooooo good.

  8. Pretty tea setting Kitty. Love the nod to Ireland and your ancestors. The num nums look delicious and easy, love that. Nice you did get the others for the birthday celebration and a sweet pic. Have a wonderful week.

  9. I'm glad you liked the Num-Nums Kitty! I've made them a couple times, they can be addicting:@) Looks like you're all set for St. Pat's-enjoy!

  10. It looks like a beautiful day on your porch with the dappled sunlight Kitty and adore your Belleek teacup and pretty shamrock teapot! ☘️
    What a yummy no bake treat. I think genealogy is fascinating, how fun your cousin sent you that photo. I know 10 children wasn’t all that uncommon for those days but the thought makes me shudder, especially without the medical care and drugs we have now. People were made from stern stuff back in the day! Hope you're enjoying some beautiful weather this week πŸ’š

  11. What a special photo to share. Love your Irish tea party. I admire your Belleek teacup and special teapot. Those Num-Nums sound great and are very cute. I was glad to hear you mention Lynn, I remember her from way back.

  12. Kitty, how nice to have your tea outside on the patio. I can't wait for warmer weather here! I love the china and that nice treat you made from Lynn. I hope you have a nice week Kitty.

  13. Love this, Kitty! The genealogy is fascinating, what a treasure to have! As is that County Cork teapot! The num nums sound fabulous. Have a great week!

  14. These nom-noms sure look delicious! Love your St. Patrick's tableware, and the Beleek china cup is beautiful! You always set the prettiest tables. How wonderful that you have access to your family history, and the beautiful picture of the church they were married in! Wow, 10 kids. Sounds so much like my grandparents. My Gram was 18, He was 32, and they had 10 kids too! Blessings to you :)

  15. Love your dainty Belleck teacup. So nice to enjoy a cup of tea and your num nums. How wonderful your cousin sent you that photo. So very special. Families were so large. My mom was the youngest of 10. Happy weekend ahead.
