No Bake Cookies


Do you ever just day dream about what you would do with your life if you could do anything you want?  Today as we drove around the Burlington area doing errands, that's exactly what I was doing.  I would really love to open up a bagel shop in our little town.  We are located at the base of a ski resort, so I think a bagel shop would do really well here.  Sigh.....a girl can dream right?

No bake cookies are my step-daughter's favorite!  There's a local deli that makes awesome no bake cookies and when she was younger we would bring her some as a little surprise.  She's getting married this October.....makes me feel old!  Anyway, these cookies are not exactly like the ones at our local deli, but these little guys are pretty darn tasty.  I really love the fact that they are "no bake"....I can't think of a dessert that's easier to make. 



No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup milk
4 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 stick of butter
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick cooking oats

Add the milk, cocoa, butter and sugar to a medium large saucepan.  Turn on high and bring to a boil and let it boil for about a minute.  Add the vanilla, peanut butter and oats to the pan and stir to combine.  Remove from heat.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper and allow it to cool and set.

  7. Been making these ever since I was a kid, way back in the Dark Ages. Don't put the peanut butter in them though.
