These were gooey, delicious chocolate-y, and everything I needed to satisfy a full on pregnancy craving. When my husband heard I was making "no-bake cookies", he said "uh...yuck". When I was almost done with them, he said "Oh! Hey! My mom used to make these, we called them splat cookies!" And according to him, they taste just like the ones he used to have as a kid. I did use a little less sugar, as suggested by some, and I'm glad I did, they came out perfectly. ***EDIT-I just made a batch of these using extra peanut butter, and rice krispies instead of oatmeal, and they were even better.

This recipe was so fast and easy I do love it. I was done in 5 minutes and it took only an hour to cool in the refridgerator. Why i gave it 3 stars then??? it had WAY too much sugar in it. I followed it to the "T" and i love sugary things but i couldn't handle more than one cookie at a time next time i'm starting with 1 cup of sugar and going up a bit from there if needed but i think there was 1 cup too much in that recipe and i love sugar things so it had to be too sugary. tips: if you don't have wax paper on hand use a tad cooking spray on the sheets. also it's good because this recipe i made out of staples.. so if you want something sweet or need a quick treat it's great bc you have these things on hand anyhow!

These are good no bake cookies but I don't use the powdered milk. Like the previous reviewer...yeah you need milk with these. The peanut butter flavor is the dominant flavor in these cookies...so you peanut butter nuts....dig in!! Happy Eating. Read More

I just finished making a double batch of this recipe. These cookies are awesome! I didn't have all the chocolate powder drink mix that the recipe calls for but I did have two small mug size packets of the hot chocolate mix in addition to and abundance of Nestle's regular baking cocoa so with the double batch that came out to approx. 1/2 cup of chocolate mix with marshmallows and a 1/2 cup of powdered baking cocoa. I believe this was a good combination but it does seem that these should be eaten sparingly with a tall glass of milk (as suggested by HollyHolly in another post) or else you may be in the emergency room from sugar shock:o). Overall a very very good recipe. I give it four stars! Read More

Came out good and very sweet. More of a grainy sugary texture than the creamy fudgy texture that I'm looking for. I do like the more chocolaty flavor of the choc. milk powder though compared to the cocoa powder. Read More

These were pretty good. I just gave them a 4 because they didn't harden up very well. I took the suggestion of others and only used 1 1/2 cup of sugar..they turned out very well. Read More
