Chocolate No Bake Cookies, America's favorite for years, children and adults alike have an affection for chocolate, oatmeal, peanut butter, and cocoa melted and swirled together into a no bake cookie.
One of the first cookies I ever learned to make was Chocolate No Bake Cookies. I remember mother would make these cookies, and there were enough of us to eat the whole batch in one setting.
When my children were small and big enough to eat these cookies, I would make them regularly. One time, I made these cookies so often, supposedly for them, but really I ate most of them myself, I burned them out on them and didn't make them for awhile. Although, that was short lived.
I still enjoy making these easy and quick cookies that satisfy the rich yummy taste of chocolate and peanut butter together. The dough is so good that it is hard to drop the spoonfuls of cookie dough on the wax paper without just going ahead and eating it right out of the pan. I now have the little hands of my Grandchildren around me, and they are ready to help me eat the dough right out of the pan too.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies
- 2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk.
Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal.
On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture with a small scoop.
Let cool and harden before eating.
Cook's Note: Don't make Chocolate No Bake cookies on a rainy or snowy day. They just don't set up right. Too much moisture in the air. Any brand of peanut butter is fine, but Jiff brand is especially good for baked goods.
