No bake cookies are absolutely my favorite, don’t ask why I love these over all of the others, I just don’t know. They are simple to make and are great on a hot summer day when you feel like making something but don’t feel like heating up your house with your oven. Pretty much every recipe of this is the same, and they aren’t the prettiest cookies in the world, but they are just yummy!
2 c Sugar
¼ c cocoa powder (I used Nestle today)
½ c milk (I prefer 2%)
½ c butter/margarine
1 t vanilla
1/8 t salt
¾ c smooth peanut butter
3 c oats
In your heavy sauce pan combine your first 4 ingredients over medium heat. Stir constantly so your chocolate and other items don't burn. Keep stirring until it comes to a boil and let it boil for about 1 minute. Remove it from heat.
Stir in the remaining ingredients. And it starts looking yummy already! You'll drop it in heaping spoonfuls on wax paper. Now you don't Have to put it in the fridge, but I prefer putting them on cookie sheets (on wax paper of course) and popping them in the fridge if there is room and on occasion the freezer.
They take about an hour to cool ad are ready to eat. If you have any left after cooling store them in an airtight container.
