Make it Yourself Monday- No Bake Cookies

  • We have been having cold weather here in Ohio (seriously, it was near freezing last night! But no worries, it's supposed to be in the 80's this week! Lol), so my mind has gone on to the holidays and to baking! Here is one of my favorite, extremely easy, no baking required recipes! 

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies 

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, bring the sugar, cocoa, margarine, milk and salt to a rapid/rolling boil, then allow to boil for one minute more. Once the minute is up, add the oats, peanut butter and vanilla to the pan and mix well. It is now ready, so work quickly as you drop the mixture by the teaspoonful onto some waxed paper, and allow it to cool. Then eat!
