No Bake Cookies

Yields: 36 Cookies


  • 1 ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cup quick-cooking oats


  1. In medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 ½ minutes.
  2. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and oats.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.
    *HINT* Start timing when the mixture reaches a full rolling boil. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly; if you don’t boil long enough, the cookies won’t form properly.
