to make it a little easier... my grandaughter and I press it in a pan and let it setup a little then cut it into bars....it's great!Read More
These weren't very good. It tastes too much like butter and the cocoa powder gives it a somewhat bitter taste. If I ever try making these again I will use half the butter and add some peanut butter, but I think I'll just find a different recipe next time.Read More

This recipe is sometimes called Eskimo Cookies. But this seems to have less sugar & butter. I made this with my 7th grade Home Ec class. During exam week I had an extra period with one class. I needed something fun, yet educational & could be done in a regular classroom. This was a perfect recipe! I changed the yield to 18, so the recipe would use 1 stick of butter (we used margarine). The only change I would make is reducing some of the sugar. Many students liked the recipe as is, but since I changed the yield,the sugar measurement is a bit wonky (1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp). I would take the 1 Tbsp out and see how it works out. For teachers: 90-min block with a lunch period in the middle. I chilled the cookies during the lunch period, but there is plenty of time even without. If I had a 45-min period, I would (or have the students the previous class) pre-measure the dry ingredients so all they have to do is dump it in a bowl, add wet & mix. Then put in freezer for 10-15 min & eat. I used this as an example of something to do when baby sitting children (not too young & always ask the parents). It is a good recipe because it is has some redeeming nutrition (fiber- but we also discuss the high sugar & fat content), has no peanut butter (since many kids have allergies), doesn’t need heat (oven or stove) & kids can use hands to mix ingredients.
I didn't have powdered sugar ... so I used 1 C of granulated sugar in the mix and reduced the cocoa powder by 1 T. Then, I rolled in cocoa powder. I was running short on time, so I threw them in the freezer to chill. So yum! And even better after they sat in the fridge over night. Thx!

Satisfied my sweet tooth without having to turn on the oven (which I HATE to do in the summer)! Was looking for a no-boil, no-peanut butter recipe that used things I already had on hand, and this one fit those criteria perfectly. I wanted to cut fat and sugar, so I subbed in light butter and about 1/4 c Equal. The cookies still set up perfectly and taste great.
Way too buttery! If I make these again I will cut back on the butter and add a little more sugar and cocoa.
I followed the advice of other members and used a little less sugar and a little more oats. These are easy to make and very tasty !
I thought this was a good recipe. I halved the cocoa and added 1 1/2 T. Soy Butter (Peanut Butter alternative). I also didn't add the powdered sugar and I didn't think it was lacking. It was plenty sweet without it. An easy tasty cookie.
great! a cookie even *i* can't burn! ;) a wonderful summer treat.
Way too sugary!
With my modifications I would give this 5 stars. Super fast and yummy. I used only 1 stick (1/2 C) of butter. I also added 1/3 C peanut butter- heated slightly to make a little runny. DELISH! They taste a little like a "puppy chow" (made from chex mix) cookie. These are wonderful!
Couldn't be easier and very tasty!
I made this recipe just yesterday - incredibly easy to make, and even easier to consume! They're addictive! I will have to make more for my friends - this batch is dissapearing quickly by just me eating them!
Delicious! And addicting! I love these cookies so much! They're great for fixing especially in the summer heat!
I wish I did not make these, I can not stop eating them! I used maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal instead of the reg. oats. I also only used 1/2 cup of sugar. I did not use the coco as well because I felt it to be a bit bitter and the maple from the instant oatmeal gave this a nice taste. Also I only used 3 tbs of butter and replaced the rest with peanut butter. If you have a sweet tooth then this is a cookie for you. not only is it good but it is very easy to make and clean up is a breeze!
I couldn't take the butter! Be prepared for a heavy cookie.
My grandchildren enjoyed making them. They can't wait to make them again.
It was quick and easy, but very messy. It took some work getting the "dough" to roll into the balls. Everyone did enjoy them.
These "snowball" cookies disappeared in no time. I'm going to make these for our company baking exchange next Christmas.
these arent very good, you cant really roll them into a ball, they taste too much like butter.
Well, I made these by accident. I had two recipes pulled up, one for these and one for baked oatmeal. I started putting together the ingredients and realized I was making the wrong thing. I couldn't go back so I went ahead and made them thinking that they wouldn't be all that great. I did sub brown sugar for white (only 1/2 cup, not packed) and 1 tsp vanilla or more (I use a lot because it always adds another dimension to the taste, and since I make my own, it's not expensive). I melted the butter so I had to refrigerate a bit before rolling, but I could mix it with a spoon so it made less mess. Lastly, I did not roll them in the confectioners' sugar, since I've been trying to cut calories. I have to admit that I did not have high hopes at all, the recipe sounded good but didn't seem like anything special. Well, after chilling, I've had 5 so far and they are addictive. Kind of like no bakes but with more of a candy bar texture. I'm planning on making truffles for the holidays this year. I'm wondering how they would be dipped in chocolate, maybe with a pecan in the middle. All in all, these were a nice treat. My kids love 'em too!
I'm glad these are being made for kids. Way too much sugar! Thank goodness I only have these kids for an hour tonight. They're for my Wed. night church class so at least I get to send them to their respective homes AFTER they eat them. ROTFL!
I added more oats and less sugar as suggested by others and really found them a yummy treat! Great for the kids lunches!
I give it a 4 stars only with a few alterations. I didn't have cocoa powder, so I melted one square of semi-sweet baking chocolate into the butter. I also reduced the butter to 1/2 C (one stick). To make the cookies stck together, I added 4 Tbs. of peanut butter (I like crunchy, but you can use any kind). I loved the end result!!
These cookies are definitely nummy!! They are very tasty and yummy and I love them. Everyone in my family loves them too. I highly recommend trying these.
i think these cookies r great!! they're fast and easy 2 make, and they taste so GOOD!!
They were o.k. if you like no bake cookies.
Really easy cookie to make ,I added a little peanut to make it a little better to roll into balls.
I used this recipe and modified it due to no powder sugar and no cocoa. which I do not have in the house due to parrots in home. in place of cocoa I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tbsp of honey. I rolled in white sugar and chilled and they came out good. next time I will decrease the honey as it made it a tad to moist.
This was a good recipe! I also only used 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 c. butter and added 4TBSP peanut butter! Yummy! I rolled most in the p.sugar and a few in p.sugar and a little flax seed and a few in raw sugar and a few in more cocoa! They were all awesome! Maybe gonna try dipping them in melted chocolate next time!
Way too sweet.
Too dry... There was no stickyness to keep the cookies together. I added peanut butter for that reason (and it made it tastier!) Rolling in powdered sugar made it much too sweet. I wouldn't use this recipe again.
Way to much butter! It coats my mouth after I eat it. I would definitely suggest cutting out some of the butter and putting in some peanut butter or something. Will not be making again.
I just LOVE this recipe! ! ! I let my 2 year old daughter and her friend make these cookies for their tea party and they had so much fun mixing this with their hands. these cookies didn't make it to the fridge the girls were eating them as fast as they could roll them. thanks for sharing this easy quick recipe.
Easy to make but no one in my household liked the powdered sugar on it. It took the chocolate taste out of it. It seemed to dry it out to much and was messy.
easy and delicious. Didn't have the vanilla so used vanilla coffee creamer instead of the water and vanilla extract. Ran out of butter so used half butter and half butter spread. flattened into pan and patted confectioner's sugar on top. My husband loved them!
Taking others' advice, I reduced the amount of sugar and butter, but had to add a bit of butter at the end to get the crumbs to hold. A nice easy recipe to make with my 2 year old.
Yummy for the whole family. I cut out the white sugar completely, and rolled in wheat germ instead of confectioners sugar for some added fibre and protein. They are just sweet enough and the chocolate taste really stands out.
I've made a lot of recipes from this website and among deserts my husband says this is his favorite along with no bake cheese cake and the pear cake. I generally always follow the recipes as are and this one is no exception.
These little puppies went fast in my house. Be careful they are delicious!! Can't just have one!!
Had to add extra water to make it stick together. Not exactlly as I was expecting but tasted OK.
very easy and good too!!
This was a fast and easy recipe to make with small children.
These are very good. I didn't add as much butter, I used only 1/2 cup and next time I wont use as much sugar. These are VERRY SWEET! They are good though!
These are great! I swapped cinnamon for the cocoa powder and added raisins for an oatmeal cookie taste. I also used turbinado sugar which is coarser than regular granulated sugar so these came out grittier than I expected. Next time I'll either use the food processor on the sugar for a finer grain or use white sugar as the recipe calls for.
Not bad for a quick cookie. I cut back on the butter and they were good. The kids love em of course.
I used orange,bananas, and strawberry oatmeal and didn't use any vanilla or cocoa powder and it tasted amazing!
I made these to take to work and, when I went to get them from the refrigerator the next morning they were gone. Needless to say, my family loved them and even asked to have them at Christmas.
Made this with a base of peanut butter and honey, left out sugar and butter. Loaded up with rolled oats, all all the types of nuts and seed I had on hand, cocoa and cinnamon, mixed well and rolled into 1/2 inch balls - perfect snack to get you through the mid-day slump or late night sweet craving!
Yummy, loved it all. Followed the recipe to a tea and yes it does help with that chocolate craving. Everyone loved them, will be making again and again. Thank you for a great recipe.
Quick, easy, and kid friendly! The only problem is that they're addictive!
Great!! I guess to like it, that just depends on your taste. I changed some things though. Instead of putting 3 tablespoons cocoa i put 3 tablespoons peanut butter. Also, I fully melted the butter. To me and my family this tasted great!!
Not too bad, but my kids did not like them.
I read the other reviews before starting this recipe and have made it twice over the weekend. I really enjoyed this dessert, but made a lot of changes to alter the taste to my preferences and to help complete the dessert. Instead of making balls I poured the batter into an 8x8 baking pan, sprinkled with conf. sugar, and chilled in the fridge for about 30 minutes. I am giving this 3 stars b/c I had to change how much of each ingredient I used in the recipe. Overall, this is a great dessert to play around with.
really like this one with no peanut butter so all ca eat an enjoy no allergies to worry about for any one easy . lovedit.
I've made this recipe twice....with a couple adjustments! I skipped the water altogether. I also added about 1/2 - 2/3 C of creamy peanut butter, tho crunchy would work as well. I've also added about 1/2 C of mini chocolate chips. Mix all together before scooping into balls, then 1 round of rolling in powdered sugar. I refrigerate for about an hour, then a 2nd round powdered sugar. And don't ever skimp on the real butter! Quite yummy!
Made the recipe just as it says and it wasn't dough-like and the form wouldn't hold very well. We added some peanut butter to act as a glue and they were amazing! we also flattened them to be more like a real cookie. They were great! Especially since we didn't have milk! Thank you!
These didn't stay together well and i had to keep them in the refrigerator. But they tasted very good.
I'm very glad I only halved this recipe, because then I was only out the cost of 1/3 of a stick of butter. Not very good at all. It ended up being thrown out.
i think i just ate a big ball of butter... try adding more oats and a little bit of peanut butter.
Absolutely fun & easy! Great for kids. I added dried cherry-flavored cranberries. These were great.
Not at all what expected, but tasted good.
This was really really rich. If you are having a MAD choco craving this will do, but I love sweets and these were a bit too much. More of a concoction than a cookie.
Very easy! Not only no-bake - no cooking required at all. My family loves them.
Really good if you use only 1/2 cup margerine and a few tbsp of peanut butter.
These were very easy to make and okay for taste. Nobody else ate them but me though. I don't think I'll make them again - unless I'm having a real sweet craving.
thank you I needed these today! and you're right, great for husbands! We wanted a quick treat but ran out of flour. My husband has a nut allergy so traditional no bake cookies are a no go. These satisfied our sweet tooth
