No Bake Cookies

Here is a nice quick treat for you. The best part about no bake cookies is that you don't bake them. I think that is nice in so many ways. You don't have to have the hot oven on. You make the whole batch at once; you don't have to set the timer and switch out a pan every ten minutes. Now, that being said. I don't think no bake cookies are magical.  You still have to cook the fudge base on the stove, and you have to do it right. If you under cook them they don't set. It you over cook them they are not soft and chewy. Luckily, I don't think that following this recipe has ever resulted in bad cookies for me.

No Bake Cookies
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of salt
Mix sugar and cocoa. Add butter and milk. Bring to boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, oatmeal, vanilla and salt. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool and cookies will set.


  1. The best part is that they are delicious. Maybe that's the worst part. I can never eat just one or ten at a time. Evil no bake cookies.

  2. These are a favourite at my house too. And the peanut butter is what makes it! Thanks for sharing at Pin-ed it, Made it.


I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
