No Bake Cookies Made With Chocolate Chips
I got this recipe from a high school friend. These take only 10 minutes to make and have saved me countless times when hungry boys unexpectedly descend on my house.
- Ready In:
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- peanut butter (optional)
- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Put oatmeal, optional peanut butter, chocolate chips and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
- Combine butter, milk and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium high until boiling. Let boil for 1 minute.
- Pour hot mix into the oatmeal mix and stir well. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper and let harden before eating. Freeze to harden faster.

these are delicious, like melt in your mouth — amazing. i halved the recipe and used 1/4 cup peanut butter. i did end up having to cook a little more of the liquid (don’t know if i over cooked it originally or what but i just eyeballed it the second time around probs did about 1/2 of what i did originally) and it turned out perfect. i’d probably use a little less sugar next time, they’re pretty rich/sweet, but delicious. i will DEFINITELY be making these again.
These are very good cookies. I personally didn't own any instant oats- only steel cut. They worked out fine, but only because I ground them up in a blender. This made the cookies have a bit of a grainy texture, but it didn't take anything away from the cookies. I also used a big spoonful of peanut butter and cut down the sugar to 3/4 cup (I used semi-sweet chips). Overall, a good recipe. :)
Absolutely perfect recipe except one little detail: Wayy too sweet! My aunt makes these every Christmas. Thank goodness I cut the sugar down to 3/4ths cup or they would be inedibly sweet! I think my error is using milk chocolate chips. If you're using the recipe as is, I highly suggest using unsweetened chips. Other than that, the recipe is perfect in flavor texture and consistency. Only use quick/one minute oats. Also peanut butter is not needed only if you want it
