No Bake Cookies!

Today I want to share a snack with you that my husband LOVES. He eats these for breakfast, lunch, dinner. If I made these every day he'd eat them every day. Also, honestly, I LOVE anything with peanut butter so really I could eat these anytime too *smiles*.

No Bake Cookies

You will need:

2 Cups of Sugar
1/4 cup of Cocoa
1/2 cup of Milk
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of peanut butter
3 cups rolled oats

Mix sugar, cocoa, milk and butter in a sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and cool for about 1 minute.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well (I usually put the oats, vanilla, peanut butter and salt in another bowl and pour in the hot ingredients ontop of these so the peanut butter melts faster). Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper. Let cool before removing from the wax paper. (Because these are so yummy we usually put them in the freezer or refrigerator to cool them faster so they will set)

Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!


  1. I too could eat these things morning, noon and night, thats why I dont make them often! This is exact recipe I use too!

  2. Okay, these are the very cookies that I mentioned yesterday on FB! They don't even make it onto the wax paper... I just get a spoon and eat them out of the bowl! So bad, I know, but so good!

  3. Mine always end up too gooey. What am I doing wrong? They don't harden up!

  4. Dionna ~ I don't know, last time I made them I didn't have enough sugar but I thought they'd be ok and they never hardened either so maybe you're not using enough sugar? Try this recipe, hopefully it'll work for you, don't forget put them in the fridge or freezer for a while and see if that helps.

  5. Like Heidi said...I eat them right out of the pan...never do have the amount of cookies the recipe says I should. lol

    Dionna...one reason they may not be hardening up is that you aren't 'boiling' the liquid ingredients long enough. The recipe that I have...different from Mandy's...calls to boil the milk, cocoa, butter & sugar (& vanilla...if you use it) for 2 minutes...no longer. I have found that if you boil the mix longer than 2 minutes they are very hard and crumbly...which I hate. If you boil them for 1 1/2 minutes they are never 'hard' but they are formed. That's how I like them. So, try that and see if it helps.

    Man, I need me some No-Bakes! Thanks, Mandy...they are so not on my 'diet.' lol

  6. I've used this same recipe for years! The kids love them. What I like to do is spray a mini muffin tin and drop the dough in there :) Works great!
