Why I Love This Recipe

These are the famous no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies we would get in elementary school. I've seen many variations of this recipe but this one is perfection.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
4 tbsp cocoa
1 stick margarine, butter works best
3 cups quick cooking oats (oatmeal)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp vanilla


Melt margarine in medium size pan.

Add sugar, cocoa and milk. Bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute. Take off burner and add vanilla and peanut butter, stirring until peanut butter is dissolved.

Add oats and stir until well mixed. Drop by spoon full on waxed paper and let cool. Makes about 23-30 cookies.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

These are great! I use to make a similar recipe years ago. Perfect for when you crave chocolate but it is too hot to turn on the oven.
