No Bake Cookies

When it’s too hot to turn on the oven, but we still want cookies, we make a batch of these. The chocolatey flavor and gooeyness are perfect for satisfying our sweet tooth.

Timing is important so get all the ingredients out and measured before starting. Nothing is more disappointing than being ready to add the oatmeal and realize there isn’t enough to measure the 3 cups required.

2 cups sugar

½ cup milk

½ cup butter, cut into several smaller pieces to help it melt faster

¼ cup cocoa powder

½ cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy (Use up to 1 cup if desired)

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups quick-cooking oats

Before starting, put parchment paper on two large cooking sheets.

Combine the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa in a large saucepan. Heat on medium, stirring often, until the butter is melted and everything is combined. Bring to a full rolling boil and cook exactly one minute.

Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Add the oats and mix until combined.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the parchment lined cooking sheets. Allow to cool (place in refrigerator to cool faster) and enjoy with a glass of ice cold milk.

Store in an air tight container, if you have any left.
