    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!

    LOVED THIS COOKIE!! I have never make no-bake cookies before but the recipe looked interesting. I did have to add 2 extra cups of oats (4 total) but I figured it just makes them more healthy! :) Everyone who had one loved them! Thanks for sharing! Mamma Bug :)

    This is just what i was looking for. My mom used to make these cookies all the time when i was growing up. I am no living on my own and just had the sweet tooth for her no bake cookies and never could get the recipe from her as she is a busy but thanks so much! i love love love it!


I am married and have three children ages 9 to 16. I work full-time so between work and attending as many school functions as I can possibly fit in, I have little time to prepare "gourmet" type dishes which require a lot of preparation time. I like tasty, quick-fix meals that use ingredients that are usually in my house and don't require an extra trip to the store. When I'm not waiting on my family or working, I like to do counted cross-stitch and recently started a new hobby----quilting.
