This being said, I am a sucker for a good no-bake cookie. There are plenty of no-bake cookies recipes out there, each a little different from the next, but I would like to claim that I have pinpointed the best no-bake cookie recipe of them all! I tell no lies! These things are amazing!
Don't mind me playing with photo filters in these pictures :) It's something I'm trying out.
I made two batches because I promised my cast members that I would bring them a treat on the day of our first run-through, and they were gone in a heart-beat. I've eaten tons of them already.
You guys... I don't call them the best dang cookies for nothing!
For those of you who don't believe me, go try them for yourselves.
The BEST No-Bake Cookies
5 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick margarine
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
Mix the cocoa, margarine, sugar, and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil, making sure that you stir it constantly. Let it boil for 2 minutes (or 1 1/2 minutes if you have a pot that retains a lot of heat because the mixture will keep bubbling after you take it off the stove... you might have to experiment), still stirring constantly. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well. Add oatmeal. Drop spoonfuls on cookie sheet. Let cool (I put mine in the refrigerator).
Short, sweet, and simple. Just make sure you boil it for the right amount of time or else the cookies will be too sticky (not enough boiling) or too dry (too much boiling).
I promise, you'll enjoy them!
