This past weekend Leah asked me for the recipe for the no bake cookies and when I told her I didn’t really have a recipe, she looked at me bewildered. I told her last time I made them, I looked online. It’s the Food Network recipe we decided upon. She made them and while you can leave them in a sealed container on the container, we opted for the refrigerator. A couple of these with a glass of milk always hits the spot.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 stick butter
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- pinch of Kosher salt
Add the sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa to a large saucepan and melt together over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once it begins to boil, boil for one minute and then remove the pan from heat. Blend in the peanut butter, vanilla extract, and Kosher salt and then stir in the oats until covered.
Using a large tablespoon, spoon onto waxed/ parchment paper. Allow to harden. Store in sealed container.
