No-Bake Cookies

No-Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. instant oatmeal

Combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa powder in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until peanut butter is melted. Then stir in oatmeal. Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper and let cool.

These are Aaron's favorite cookies. Someone always makes them for church activities (don't know who that person is) and finally Aaron told me that I need to find a recipe and start making them for him. So I did just that. He said that I could have added more peanut butter (sometimes I think he loves peanut butter more than he loves me) but I think they turned out good just the way they were. Personal preference, I guess.


  1. No bake cookies are one of my favorites-but I never make them-go figure (but,since they are one of my favorites maybe it's a good thing I never make them,hmmmmmm...)

    & I'm probably going to try the wraps (the recipe right before this one) for supper tonight.

    Wow, you updated both blogs in one day-you go girl! Isn't it amazing what a good night's rest can do for you! Hopefully she'll keep it up!

  2. I'm so happy to see that Jenny's Cooking Blog is back in business! I haven't had any good ideas for cooking since you've been away! haha I wanna make these cookies tonight!
