    We've been making no-bakes forever and a day. I reduced this to about 1 3/4 cups of sugar, 2 1/2 cups of quick oats and 1/2 cup of coconut and kept everything as it was directed. They turned out fabulous. I also boiled an extra minute to make sure they "set". Fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe.

    This a the perfect way to satisfy a chocolate craving as I always have these ingredients on hand. I halved the recipe and cut the sugar by a couple of tablespoons and the no bakes are plenty sweet. I got 24 nice sized treats. Thank you for sharing this recipe !

    I reduced the sugar to 2 cups and it was plenty sweet. Very nice. ... we especially like them from the freezer. Thanks!

    What an easy to make recipe - and delicious to boot (albeit a little sweeter than your average cookie.) Love the peanut butter and vanilla. Note to future reviewers, even though it may seem a little loose in texture, resist the urge to add extra oats - they'll firm up just fine! Made for PAC Fall 2009 ~ you were adopted!

    I also cut the recipe in half and these are so good! The addition of peanut butter is wonderful with the cocoa and vanilla. So easy and very tasty! **Made for Fall PAC 2009**


I'm just now getting into cooking. Because I am such a picky eater I never try anything new and my family always gets the same ordinary meals. I'm trying to change that by (slowly) experimenting with different recipes.
