Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Drop Cookies

Posted on Tuesday, August 16, 2011 · 4 Comments 

Those are what I made to accompany us as I sewed and Drew watched the Saints game the other day. They were delicious and I haven’t been able to stay out of the kitchen and stop eating them since.

I think the last time I made these cookies was with my friend, Tonya, at her house when we were in middle school. It had been that long. I don’t know why though. I guess when I get cookie cravings I automatically make chocolate chip cookies. I tend to neglect other cookie types. Maybe I should work on that. Anyway, here is the recipe so that you can skippy to your kitchens and whip you up a batch:

1/2 C Butter
2 C Sugar
1/2 C Milk
4 Tbsp Cocoa
1/2 C Peanut Butter
3- 3 1/2 C Quick cooking Oats
2 tsp. Vanilla

Add the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 1 minute. Stir in the next 3 ingredients and drop onto wax/foil paper. Let cool until set. Enjoy. :)

It is especially nice to make these in the summer, since you can still have delicious cookies without having to turn the oven on and heat up the whole house! Plus there is barely any cooking time at all involved! Happy Cooking. :)

P.S. I’ve also heard of making them without the cocoa and peanut butter and adding coconut and dried cherries/cranberries/raisins instead. I’ve never tried that, but I’m intrigued. Anyone else had them like that before?
