I had a request for more desserts. I also was made aware by my cousin, Kristine that National Homemade Cookie Day was on October 1st! Did you know that? I hope you made cookies! So in honor of those two things, we're making cookies today.
No Bake Cookies might be a no brainer, but oh my gosh they are the greatest combination ever! I mean really, when's the last time you've made no bake cookies? Make this recipe - which I've decided is the best. Yes, there are a few variations of the no bake out there. But the ratio and the brand of ingredients in this recipe...make it the best no bake cookie ever.
No Bake Cookies
1 stick of butter
2 cups of sugar
4 T. cocoa powder (Hershey's)
1/2 cup of milk
3 cups quick oats (MUST be quick!)
1 cup peanut butter (Jif all the way)
1 tsp. vanilla (I double it)
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and milk in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until it comes to a boil. (not just one or two little bubbles, but bubbles all the way around the pan) Start a timer for EXACTLY one minute. The time is very important - so pay attention. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Pour in vanilla and peanut butter. Once the peanut butter has melted, add the instant oats. Scoop spoonfuls of cookie onto aluminum foil. Let cool and enjoy!
