No Bake Cookies.

Tasty no-bake Cookies made with oats, peanut butter and cocoa. Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly.


1 ¾ cups white sugar

½ cup milk

½ cup butter--do not use margarine.

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup crunchy peanut butter--use all-natural for best results.

3 cups quick-cooking oats.  For more texture, use old-fashion oats.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.  Taste Best if you store cookies in an air-tight container and keep in refrigerator.  Yields about 3 dozen cookies.
