Good Eats and Yummy Treats: No-Bake Cookies

Remember my flood?  Well, I decided to make cookies for our neighbors as a good-will gesture.  Not that cookies make up for my washer raining on their apartment, and they know that it was an accident, but I still felt like I should do something.  I hope they liked them.

No-Bake Cookies

So, I had a bit of a blonde moment and forgot to take pictures of the cookies before I took them to the neighbors, so I borrowed this one from Brown Eyed Baker:


1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 tsp. vanilla

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa.  Bring to a boil and cook for 1 1/2 minutes (begin timing once the mixture comes to a hard boil.)  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats and vanilla.  Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.  Let cool until hardened.

  1. I LOVE no bake cookies! OK, so I am a dork. I thought I was already following you (meant to click that button!) and I thought today, "Hmm, Courtney hasn't posted in a while..." only to discover I never clicked the button...my head would fall off if it wasn't attached!

  2. Love these. My mom and I used to make them when I was a little girl, but without the peanut butter and with coconut. I make them every year at Christmas ~ brings back fond memories of her. :)



I ♥ your comments! They make my day :)
