No-Bake Cookies

Ever since I was a little girl, these have been some of my favorite cookies. They are so addictive! We always referred to them as cow patties. They may not look pretty, but they are melt in your mouth divine! Just a note of caution-these are not healthy at all! I was wanting to use up some things I had in my pantry, so I used full fat peanut butter, sugar, etc.I found this recipe at, (sadly her blog has been removed) and I also made a few changes that I found in some different recipes on Hope you enjoy!

1/2 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp. vanilla

In medium saucepan, combine cocoa, sugar, milk, and butter. Bring to boil and boil one minute. Take off heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. Add vanilla and stir in oatmeal. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto wax paper or silicone mat. Allow to sit until they become hard and can easily be scraped off with a spatula.

    After looking around your blog I have a non food question. How did you get your layout to have 3 columns? I have a similar format but only 2 and would love 3 columns. Any advice would be great! tia

    wifeplzak-I just googled how to add a third column. I have the page I found on my favorites at my home computer. I will leave a comment in your blog with the website when I get home.

  6. Chocolatey delicious! I’ve actually never made no-bake cookies but I REALLY want to now!

  7. I haven't made these since my kids were small. We used to make these all the time while I was growing up. Really brings back memories, now I need to make them again!

  8. I love these too, use to make them for my girls all the time when they were little. My favorite time to eat them is right after they are done, and a little bit warm!
