No Bake Cookies Recipe

no bake cookies


The season of Christmas baking is upon us! The temperature has steadily dropped here in Iowa, and I have enjoyed spending the last few days keeping my apartment warm with the heat from the oven while I’m baking away. These cookies are easy to whip up on the stovetop, and I’ve even placed the cookie sheet out in the snow on my deck to cool them down quickly. This recipe is just the beginning of a 25 Days of Cookies series so stay posted!


2 Cups Sugar

4 Tablespoons Cocoa

1 Stick Butter

1/2 Milk (I recommend at least 2 percent)

1 Cup Peanut Butter

1 Tablespoon Vanilla

3 Cups Oatmeal

Wax Paper and Cookie Sheets


In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for one minute then add peanut butter, vanilla, and oatmeal. On a wax paper lined cookie sheet, drop mixture by the spoonful. Wait until cookies are cooled and hardened to serve. Keep refrigerated.
