Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

These little gems are SO yummy...

Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

Feel free to adjust accordingly:

2 cups sugar (I got away with 1 1/2)
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
1/4 cup peanut butter

Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a saucepan. On medium heat, bring to a boil for one full minute.
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal.

Drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.

(**P.S. They're pretty gooey, but they firm up if you put them in the refrigerator.**)

Special thanks to Josh K for letting me share the recipe!

  1. Those look to die for!!!! Laura and one of her friends, (when they were REALLY little) tried to make no-bake cookies for our parents, but something went wrong and the batter would NOT set, so my mom didn't want to hurt their feelings and called it: "Cookie soup!". We've eaten it undercooked and gooey ever since....YUM.
