This must be one of the easiest cookies to make, and it has been a family favorite in both my husband and my families for years and years. A lot of people complain that the cookies don't always set up well, but I found if you follow the advice in this recipe about bringing it to slow boil and not boiling for more than 90 seconds, I get perfect results every time. I use creamy instead of crunchy peanut butter.
Excellent, but I was eating these non stop and felt I needed a lower in calories version. I have not added up the calories in this version, but I use a lot less butter, sugar, and peanut butter - so I assume it is lighter :-) Less Sweet, Fewer Calories, BUT nearly as good version 1/2+ cup sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/8 cup butter Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 1/2 minutes Remove from heat Stir in: 3 Tblsp cocoa >1/4 cup peanut butter 2 1/2 cup oats 1/2 tsp vanilla drop on a cookie sheet and let cool
WAY too sweet even after I added an extra 1/2 c. of oatmeal and reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups! I recommend using 1/2 the amount of sugar (1 c.) and upping the oatmeal by a 1/2 a cup. They were however very easy to make--a perfect dessert to make in the summer when it's too hot to turn on the oven. If I reduce the sugar next time they'd easily get 5 stars.
WOW! What a blast from the past!! I've always loved these cookies and now my children do also. Wish I would have had this recipe years ago. I microwaved my ingredients for 3 1/2 min. stirred then microwaved for another 3 1/2 min. then added pb oatmeal and vanilla. Texture of the cookies were perfect. Thanks for the recipe Sherrie!
WOW!!! I made no bake cookies that turned out right!! This has rarely happened in the past, LOL. Actually, I made a batch from a recipe I had, and they wouldn't set, as usual. I was determined to make some that would set. I came to my favorite recipe site and found this one... perfection!! I'm throwing all my other no bake recipes away! Thanks to the original poster of this recipe!!!
I've read all the no bake cookie recipes on this site and most of them are identical to the one I've had for almost 40 yrs. The only difference is the time you should boil the butter, sugar, cocoa and milk. I bring the cocoa mixture to a soft rolling boiling on medium high heat then I turn the heat down to medium and stir constantly for 2 minutes. A nice twist is to add almond extract instead of vanilla. For a glossy finish to the cookie only use real butter. These are my husbands favorite cookies than I've made them probably a thousand times and they have always turned out. I also use 5 T cocoa instead of the 3 or 4 the other recipes listed.
