You know those days when you’re going through every cabinet in your house looking for a chocolate “fix”. Well – I have it! Chocolaty No-Bake Cookies – (swooning). These thing are as addictive as George Clooney’s smile. And, the great part…………..no fuss, no muss, one pan and simple ingredients. So, the next time hormone hell has arrived, or you’re resisting the urge to PSM rant, whip up a batch of these cookies. You won’t regret it. I should also mention they never make it to the solidified stage when I make them because I grab a spoon, a cold glass of milk and eat them ooey-gooey and warm. I highly recommend it!
No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup milk
Mix in a saucepan and boil for one minute. Stir constantly.
Add: 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
Mix well and drop by spoonful onto waxed paper. Cool (on counter in winter or in the refrigerator). (Chopped nuts or coconut may be added if desired). I prefer them plain.
