So I am possibly a little bit too excited about this recipe, but for a couple of good reasons. #1 In total, making these cookies probably took me 15 minutes. (And I really don't even think it took that long!) #2 D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!! I'm really happy with how they turned out. Granted, cooling takes about 45 minutes, but it's not like you have to stand in the kitchen and watch them cool. Therefore, I am all about this quick and yummy recipe! Here goes:
I found this recipe online. This is the link http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/no-bake-cookies-i/Detail.aspx, but I provide the recipe and my notes below.
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. (I added one cup of oats at a time and stirred well each time.) Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.
