Tiffany called tonight and asked what was I doing. She had just gone to get the ingredients for no bake oatmeal cookies. I was like no way! That is exactly what I am making. Once you think about these they have to be made soon! The power of the crave! I have the recipe my sister Keyna gave me at my wedding shower in one of those cookbooks filled with hand written recipes from all who attended that shower. I will wait to hear from Steve, Carrie, Keyna, Patti, Bill, John, and Jim-all I need is a number. How many days it took you from seeing these or hearing about them before you are gathering the ingredients!
No Bake Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups of sugar
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of milk
4 TBS cocoa
~combine these 4 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil for one minute. (And I mean one minute. Too few seconds and it will not set up. Too many and it will be dry and crumbly!)
~remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup of peanut butter
~finally stir in 3 cups of minute quick Quaker oatmeal. (Or as we say: oats!)
~drop them on foil or wax paper by teaspoonfuls
No matter how they turn out they are edible! And if its breakfast “you can have three!” (I am sure I never said that guys!)
So now I’m gonna have to make some. I can already taste them. Unfortunately I’ll have to wait till Monday 😦 I’ll be in the woods this weekend for mom and me.
How fun Heidi! Yeah…no bakes might melt in the woods!
Yum!! I have fun memories of making these with your kiddos during one of my overnight stays…. and substituting for ingredients we couldn”t find! They still tasted good! 🙂
