No Bake Cookies (For 1 or 2 People)

My mother used to make these when I was a kid. I still love them as an adult, but don't want to be tempted to eat an entire batch. So I came up with this recipe - perfect when you want just a little something sweet, but not too much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar, Hershey's cocoa and dry milk thoroughly in a small saucepan. Add water and butter. Then stir constantly over medium/high heat.
  2. After butter has completely melted, continue stirring and boil one minute.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and then oats.
  4. Drop by the spoonful onto wax paper or dinner plate.
  5. Eat warm or save for later.

I was having a bad day and needed some comfort cheer me up food. This did the trick!! Very quick, very easy and sooooo good. I used 1.5 T of liquid milk and added some coconut. Thanks!

No bake cookies are one of my faves, but mine never seem to want to set. This recipe worked perfectly. Also, I had no milk (of any sort) so I just omitted it and they still turned out great.

Easy and yummy. I didn't measure anything, eyeballed it all, and it came out just fine.
