No Bake Cookies

This beautiful glob of awesomeness is a treat I fondly remember being on our lunch plates in elementary school. I searched for years looking for the recipe and eventually found it and have been recreating these wonderful bites of cocoa, oats, peanut butter, vanilla, sugar, and butter ever since!

You can whip up a batch in minutes and like many of my recipes, you’ll find you’ll usually have the ingredients on hand. My only advice is to be careful that you don’t overcook the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter mixture. Doing so will result in a dry cookie. If done properly, these are moist and flavorful. Your family will think they are eating candy that took hours to make!

Bon app├ętit!
