This has been a classic in my house for years. For those who's cookies didn't harden, try them again. They need to be "dryish" not super gloppy when you put them on the waxed paper. If they are too wet, just add 1/4 cup or so more oats. I always use regular oatmeal, never quick cook as they seem to absorb more moisture and I don't usually have consistency issues. The sugar can be cut back just a bit too, if you find them too sweet. Read More

I read the recipe wrong and used rolled oats instead (I'm a beginner!) quick cooking oats but they still turned out nicely. Very yummy and rich--easy to make too! Read More

These were exactly what I was looking for! I substituted old fashioned oats for the quick (if you like them a little chewier) and omitted the nuts and chocolate. If you make them big & wrap them individually they're just like they sell in all the convenience stores! What a hit thanks! Read More

I love these cookies! Chocolate and peanut butter without the baking - what can be better or easier! I made them for my husband and he thought these were too sweet. My grandmother called these Chocolate Candy cookies when I was growing up. I usually melt the butter in the sugar and milk plus I use 1/4 cup of cocoa. I also add in an optional 1 cup of coconut to mine. That makes them form better. It's hard to let these chill in the fridge you want to eat them right away. Read More

These cookies ended up tasting like mushy gooshy cookie dough. They did not get hard and were way too sweet. Read More

I'm giving these 4 stars. I think the recipe as written is 3 stars but with a little tweaking it tastes like 5 stars. When I made this recipe as written I found it to be incredibly sweet and a lacking some flavor. So I upped the cocoa to 3T cut the sugar back to about 1 1/2 cups and threw in a pinch of salt. That made it worth 5 stars!!!! Read More

The missing ingredient in these cookies is SALT - that's why they taste too sweet. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups used old fashioned oats adding another 1/2 cup to make the mixture more dry and added salt to taste. The salt made a HUGE difference (what cookie recipe do you know of that doesn't have salt added????). I also added raw sunflower seeds. The salted kind would have been even better. For a more chocolate taste mix in either semi-sweet or dark chocolate morsels after you have mixed in the oatmeal. Instead of dropping by teaspoons full I rolled them into balls the size of walnuts. I ended up with 36 balls plus a few. Read More
