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 :-)

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

2 c
sugar
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
milk
1 c
peanut butter
3 c
quick-cooking oats
1 tsp
vanilla

How to Make Quickie Cookies (no-bakes)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a strong boil for 1 & 1/2 to 2 & 1/2 minutes NO LONGER.
  • 2Add 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 :-)
  • 3Again, quickly pour mixture in a greased dish (13X9) or whatever you have. Press into pan evenly. When cooled, cut into squares.
  • 4*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.
