Our Mom’s No-bake Cookie Recipe

Growing up this was one of my favorite treats that our mom would make us. Its sweet chocolate-y goodness doesn’t take very long to make either. So if your sweet tooth is in a hurry, this is the right cookie for you.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 6 tbsp coco
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup of coconut or peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp salt

While I let the butter melt in milk, I combine the oats, coconut and salt in a measuring cup and then set aside for later.

Once the butter is melted I add the sugar and coco to the pan. Stir constantly until brought to a boil. The most important part of the recipe is how long the mixture boils. It needs to boil for exactly 2 1/2 minutes. Too short and the cookies will be sticky, too long and the cookies will be dry.

After it has boiled for 2 1/2 minutes, remove from heat. Add the oat, coconut and salt combination to the chocolate mixture along with the vanilla.

Stir until oats are completely covered. Spoon out onto aluminum or wax paper. Let them dry and enjoy.
