I have several recipes for "no-bakes", but this one looked a little different. It's a good bit less chocolate-y than most other recipes, but I found this to be a plus. These cookies turned out really great, and much to my surprise, didn't start getting hard and crusty in the pan before I finished dropping cookies onto waxed paper! I also like the fact that this recipe uses much less butter than the other no-bake recipes I have gathered. Simply delicious and so, so, so quick when you have that craving for chocolate and peanut butter!

Great! I couldn't find my regular recipe since it's been awhile so I made a half batch of these instead. I used about 1/4 less sugar, more cocoa (almost double), just a pinch of salt, and a few more oats (just mixed more in 'til it looked like it usually does with other recipe). I also always use skim milk and it works fine in case anyone was wondering. ;) Thanks. :)

This recipe was great. Not too chocolatey, just right! I did have to use a total of 4 cups of oats though. The whole family loved it. Just like mom used to make!
