No-Bakies!!

This has got to be the **best** cookie to make during the hot weather, because you don't have to turn on the oven. Along with that point, these cookies are extremely addicting!! They have the best chocolatey taste, and they kinda remind me of fudge : D I never really realized the props you get for being a baker! You give these cookies to anyone, and you have them under your complete control!!

You cook them on a stove top, and when you scoop them on to a parchment sheet, they harden, and sort of crystalize. Its so cool! You gotta be careful to boil the stuff long enough, or they will not harden, like mine didnt in the begining. The first couple of cookies that I put down on the sheet were not boiled long enough. The recipe called for boiling the mixture for 1 min, but later I found out that you had to boil it for two minuites. But even if you mess up like me, they will still taste absolutely godly.


Thanks everyone for the Birtheday wishes!! Im super excited to use the new kitchen aid mixer I got for my birthday!! Yay!!


No Bakies


1 stick butter
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cup quick oats

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add next four ingredients and heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil for TWO minutes, then remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and oats.Drop mixture by the spoonful onto a sheet of waxed paper, parchment paper, or aluminum foil. Allow no-bakies to cool until firm, approximately 20 minutes.

Nice! Easy and delicious. Interesting that you don't cook the oats at all.

Sounds great I like the no bake idea!

I love no bake cookies. Eating the "dough" from the pan is the best. I hate waiting them set up:)

I love these - they're my total Christmas go to for a fast and always appreciated cookie. I've never tried them with peanut butter. They must be great.

Hey there Old Lady - those look really good! Right up my alley, no bake AND easy. Hmmm, and I am intrigued about using a cookie to have someone under complete control. You are funny!

Now there's a true foodie by getting a mixer for your birthday. My daughters birthday is coming up next week but she is getting a purse and clothes which we always need too:D

Wow, No-bake cookies sounds a little hard to believe. But they look as delicious as the baked ones.

Great looking cookies, remind me of an outstanding cookie my great-aunt used to make. If only a few days earlier you could have entered them into the No-Bake Peanut Butter Exhibition we just had the roundup for!

Why does the top picture look so different than the bottom one, is it just the light? Looks like a PB version and a PB+choc version.

I love no-bake treats. My mom makes the best homemade granola bars and the method is very similar to yours. Can't wait to try these!

I certainly need to keep my oven off for the next month or so as our apartment is dreadfully hot! I also always need an excuse for dessert, and this one is it!

Ahhhh, my mom used to make these when I was a kid all the time. Love them!

These were always my favorite cookies when I was a kid. I've tried making them a few times and they never get firm! I don't know what I'm doing wrong... lol I follow all the instructions. My mom made them the same way, usually without peanut butter, sometimes with. I usually make them without. I wonder if the peanut butter makes a big difference in how firm they get. Do you know if it should make a difference?
