Dad "rocks" no-bake cookies

Recipe adapted from Hungry Happenings

Yields about two dozen rocks


  • 24 ounces white confectionery coating or candy melts (we used this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4-1/2 cup crushed Oreo cookies
  • 1 can low-fat sweetened condensed milk
  • Dash of salt


  1. Heat the candy melts, milk and a dash of salt in a medium saucepan over low heat until mixture starts to melt. Stir constantly to avoid burning. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup Oreo crumbles.
  2. To add different colors, separate mixture into 3 bowls. Leave 1 bowl as is and add another 1/4 cup Oreo crumbles to another. To the third, add the cocoa powder. Mix to combine each. Wrap each bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for about 30 minutes.
  3. To make the rocks, pinch off pieces of the fudge mix and roll into rock shapes. Add some pebbles by rolling smaller shapes.
