I love this recipe! I make it about 3 times a week for my boyfriend's lunches. I haven't modified anything in it (and it comes out great!), but seeing ideas like rice crispies has me thinking! A must have for the recipe book!
I have cooked and eaten this recipe since childhood. I live in hot humid Louisiana and in the summers I never use the big gas oven. This recipe is the easiest sweet that I know how to cook, and nowadays I usually do it in the microwave. I am another who does not measure when I cook, but this looks like the ratio that I use, except that I used double that amount of cocoa powder, and I don't used the vanilla. The only other difference is that I continue to cook for a minute or so after I add the oats. But it is a recipe that is easy to modify all sorts of ways, and I often use cold cereal like Rice Crispies or CherriO's instead of oats. In that case, remove from heat before adding the cereal. I often use the no-bake with RiceCrispies as the first layer and then add a layer of marshmallow crispy treats.
I followed the directions exactly I substituted almond butter for peanut butter and added walnuts. They turned out delicious
I Love this recipe, I used to make it for my kids, had since lost it, and this is the one I had. thanks. <br/>Dovey
I'm not sure how to rate these, because I've never had no-bake cookies before, and wasn't sure what to expect. I really like the flavor, but not the texture. I used rolled oats so that may be the problem, I think quick oats would have worked better. Also, after mixing the oats an PB in, the mixture was really wet.Too wet to hold any shape. I thought it might set up, but it didn't so I add two cups of rice krispies and that did the trick. Lastly, I used 11/2 C sugar and still thought they were a little too sweet. I love that the recipe doesn't call for a lot of butter. I'm glad I tried these, they were fun and different to make. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Easiest cookies ever!
The cookies are heaven on earth comfort food to me. I haven't made no-bakes since my youth but they are some of my favorites. These were so quick and easy to whip up. The chocolate and peanut butter are sublime together. The only problem is that I eat too many of them. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
These tasted good and were very easy two make. Good for when you need something in a hurry. Thak you for sharing
