No Bake Cookies

For a long time I didn't make No Bake Cookies because I couldn't find "the" recipe. My cookies either ended up dried out, runny or they tasted weird. I'm pretty particular about my sweets so I felt accomplished when I finally found the recipe that ended my hunt. Hopefully it ends yours too.

No Bake Cookies
2 cups white sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 pinch salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan bring sugar, cocoa, margarine, milk and salt to a rapid boil for 1 minute. Add oats, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well. Working quickly, drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and let cool.



  1. I will give these a try for sure! I can't ever find a recipe that works for me either...thanks Dayna!!

  2. So somehow I have in my possession a little blue cook book done by your family. I think Melanie gave it to me. There are peanut butter cookies that are exactly like this but without the cocoa and I always make them into no bakes with cocoa just like your recipe. It is the ONLY no bake cookie recipe that EVER works for me. I think the trick is letting it boil for one minute! I don't know but they are the best!

  3. My nieces and nephews call these gorilla poops
