Perfect recipe--my mom made these cookies and they taste just the same. You have to bring them to a FULL boil and then boil one minute they won't set up right otherwise (i.e. you'll get goop). Also use quick cook oats. The old-fashioned oats will give you a chewy uncooked texture. Read More

We made this recipe last night. Talk about goop. I am not sure what I expected. The taste is good so I think it would be a fun toddler type recipe but for adults it was laughable. I wish I could give advice on what to do to make it better but truth be told I don't think there is a way. Read More

I mix the cocoa (about an extra tablesoon) in with the sugar BUTTER and milk before boiling to eliminate lumps from the dry cocoa. Otherwise spot-on and killer NoBakes!!! Read More

Thank you for your pinpoint perfect directions. I did bring the mixture to a full boil just before timing and I did use quick cook oats. I made these for the first time last week and my family and all my drop-by guests loved them. Very easy to make. A keeper! Read More

I've been making these for years and love them. I just wanted to mention that if you don't like chocolate they are just as good when it's left and it doesn't effect the texture. I've also added nuts or raisins to the chocolate cookies for a different taste. Great little cookie. Read More

These go quick no matter who you're serving them to!! One year we made them as holiday gifts for my daughter's teachers and added a pretty card with the recipe on it - it was a hit!! Super-easy recipe and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand so I can make them when I get a craving!! Read More

OK but not brilliant. Maybe better for kids but not a cookie to serve to adults. It was a little more like chocolate icing with oats in it rather than an actual cookie.Very quick to make! Read More

I thought this was a very easy and quick recipe and they came out great. I made sure to stand by the stove and time the boiling exactly. I didn't have vanilla extract floating around so I just threw in some cinnamon and it added a great extra flavor. Next time I might try experimenting and subsitute the milk with chocolate or vanilla soy milk to see if it'll give it an extra boost of flavor. I made them big so I definitely didn't get 48 of them.
