Quickie Cookies (no-bakes)

Missy Asche


My mother made these a lot when I was growing up. I am so happy I got the recipe from her before she passed away. Thanks, mom :-)

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter



Varies-depends on who gets to them first!


Stove Top


2 c
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder (or up to 1/3 c if you like them real chocolatey)
1/2 c
(1 stick) butter
1/2 c
1 c
peanut butter
3 c
quick-cooking oats
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a strong boil for 3 minutes NO LONGER.
Add vanilla and peanut butter; stir quickly and thoroughly to melt peanut butter. Add oats and mix quickly...this step must be where the quickie comes from in the title of quickie cookies :-)
Again, quickly pour mixture in a greased dish (13X9) or whatever you have. Press into pan evenly. When cooled, cut into squares.
*Note* My mom dropped spoonfuls on wax paper, but I find it easier to put it all in a dish and let it cool. I think to have enough time to drop by spoonfuls before the mix hardens, I would only boil the mixture for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
