These are the best, delicious, amazing. This recipe has gone back and forth between me and one of my best friends for years. I'll lose my recipe and call her and ask for it, then she'll lose hers and call me and ask for it. It was a tradition of ours throughout high school to make no bake cookies when we were at each others house. So here it is, our wonderful, amazing recipe (and it's so much sweeter if you make them with a friend).
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
Combine and boil, stirring continually for 1 1/2 minutes after boil. Remove from heat after the 1 1/2 minutes and add in
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats
Drop onto wax paper to harden.
Have your wax paper ready before starting.
Put paper bags or newspaper under the wax paper so the cookies don't leave heat marks
Have your 1/2 cup peanut butter measured and ready so it can be dumped into the boiling mixture as soon as it's taken off the heat.
Have oats already measured (if not all three cups, at least one measured out).
Good luck! Sometimes it can be hard to get no bakes perfect. Sometimes they are too runny and don't harden, sometimes they harden too much, too fast and crumble. Follow this recipe to a T and you should be good. :)
