No-Bake Cookies

This is the only picture I got of the no-bake cookies that we made/served at Carolyn's Baby Shower, so it'll have to work. 

I used to make these quite a bit, and they always set up. Right after marrying Cameron, he told me that his family is cursed and that their no-bake cookies never set up right. Since then, every time I make these cookies they don't set up! I was telling that to Em and Chip as I was making these, and Chip walked over, bonked me on the forehead and said "You are healed". Guess what...the cookies set up! The cookie demon who keeps cookies from turning out right left me. ;) They were yummy!


  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.


  1. Maybe Chip could visit me here in Stanley?

  2. We'll have to bring him up and he can work his healing magic, hahaha.
