Cocoa, peanut butter and oatmeal No Bake Cookies are my sons favorite cookie. This recipe was given to me by my son’s Grandma, bless her soul. I always make sure I make everyoneโ€™s favorite cookie at Christmas time. No Bake Cookies are the second kind of cookie I learned how to make with Chocolate Chip being the first kind. It took me quite a few times to figure out how to keep these delicious cookies thick and not flatten out. I am going to share that with you as these turn out great every time I make them.
