No Bake Cookies

I have always loved no bake cookies, but for some reason I never think to make them. However, on Sunday I was craving something sweet (as I always do) and I wanted to do something easy. So I though of making no bake cookies.

Also, it brought me back to a fond memory. Once upon a time when Nate and I were just dating my mom would email Nate random questions to get to know him. She emailed him asking what his favorite cookie was and he said no bake cookies. So that day I made no bake cookies for him, and I don't think I've made them since, until Sunday. But, they were as tasty as ever.

So you should make them.

1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 TBS cocoa powder
1 TBS vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups oatmeal

1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Boil for 1 and 1/2 minutes. (Set a timer)
4. Remove from heat and add vanilla, peanut butter, and oatmeal.
5. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
6. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. **

**Nate said I made them big this time, but they were like normal cookie size. And regardless of size they still taste delicious.

What is your favorite type of cookie?


  1. I was just thinking of these the other day, because I refuse to turn my oven on until September or October, and I want chocolate cookies. HowEVer, every time I have tried making them here (as opposed to California), they haven't set up. The flavor is good, but they won't keep any kind of cookie shape. I'm going to have to try your recipe.

    We always called them "road apples." I had no idea they were "chocolate no-bakes." :)

    I think I have different faves for different moods. Chocolate chip cookies (no nuts) are a definite comfort food. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are divine. I love snickerdoodles. And I love the really spicy, dense gingersnaps I used to make.

    Mmmmm . . . coooookieeeees.

  2. Aimee, your nails don't look short!! Did you break the habit?

  3. YUM! My mom use to make these for us when we were little, but she hasn't shared the recipe(she lost it)! Thank you! I cannot wait to make these with my kiddos.
    came over from the linky Tatertots and Jello : )
    Oh... and Chocolate chip!

  5. Chocolate chip cookies are a definite comfort food, as per mood. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are divine. This is one of my first selection. More spicy is seems very delicious.
