America's Favorite Chocolate No Bake Cookie {Granny's Recipe}

12:59 PM
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 sitting.

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 a while.

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
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    3 cups oatmeal
    Waxed paper
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.

  1. I never ate it "out of the pan," I always just made a pan big enough to DIVE IN! That way, it was easy to just wallow around in them with my mouth open :-) Truly, it's a wonder my kids ever got a taste of these when I made them :-)

    I have found ways to make these cookies where they aren't so "damaging," but nothing takes the place of the real, original recipe. I still have mine handwritten in my old personal cookbook (stained with lots of chocolate and peanut butter, I might add....)

    Thanks for the memories!

  2. I have heard of these cookies before but have yet to try them. The recipe looks so simple and easy...just what I am looking for these days :)

  3. I love no bake cookies and these look terrific. This is such a great recipe to whip up in no time. Great for kids beginning to cook in the kitchen.

  4. No bake cookies were always one of my favorites.
