For those times when you're craving something chocolatey, here's a super-quick and yummy fix! This is the no bake cookie recipe I've successfully used since childhood. I like that it calls for only half the butter that most other similar no bake cookie recipes call for. These cookies still turn out great!
Maybe I did something wrong, because this recipe pretty much came out like cookie dough. I boiled the milk, sugar, and cocoa for 1 minute while trying to keep it from boiling over. After chilling over night and hoping they would solidify, I finally popped in the oven for 10 minutes at 375F. Also, only added 1.75 cups of sugar and they still came out plenty sweet.
This is the no-bake cookie recipe I grew up with! Good, inexpensive, easy & quick to make. One thing my mom used to do was to pop a big Tupperware bowl of popped popcorn and make this recipe minus the oats, and then pour it hot over the popcorn. Then us kids would get spoons and dig in, ymm.
