No Bake Cookies


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.





In a medium pan, melt the butter over low heat.



Mix the milk and cocoa together until

combined with a whisk or a fork.

Pour milk mixture and sugar into

the melted butter and stir.



Continue stirring constantly until the

mixture starts to bubble.

Once it bubbles stir quickly and at the

point you can not stir away the bubbles,

set a timer for one minute.

Stirring constantly, continue to boil

for the full one minute.

Add the peanut butter and stir until it melts.



Remove from the heat and quickly add

vanilla extract and oatmeal.

Stir until all of the oatmeal is

covered in the chocolate.



Drop the mixture by a heaping tablespoon

onto a large sheet of waxed paper.

Let set until they are firm.

Store in an airtight container.
