no bake cookies recipe

Have you ever made no-bake cookies that ended up looking more like a blob of goo...
Well.... I admit it, (insert sad facial expression) - I have.

In the past when I tried making this type of cookie it was a flop!
So I avoided it!
I enjoy baking, and have baked a lot of cookies and never had so much trouble
with a cookie.... ever.
Seriously, it was a goopy blob! (it was a good tasting goopy blob,
 but definitely had to use a spoon to eat it) Ha... 

Well, I came across this recipe a while back when looking through my box of
recipe cards, and it was different from my previous attempts at this kind of cookie...
This one is a recipe that my mother in law had given me... so I decided
to be brave and give it a go... why not right?  If it ended up a flop we can slap it on
some ice cream and call it "no bake gooey ice cream topping".. ???  Okay, not
such a clever name. :0)

However, they actually set up. No blob of goo looking stuff....
A no bake cookie success story!

These have been made several times since.
So I thought I would share the recipe today...


2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter

Mix together, boil for 1 minute.
Add the following:

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups oats (I use quick cooking)
1 cup small marshmallows

Stir well over low heat until it's combined, drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper...

Waaahlaaa! Easy to make, and good too... my kind of cookie recipe! :0)

  1. My hubby and son would probably like these...:) I'm not a fan of peanut butter but I could probably substitute Nutella or Biscoff for myself. I have such a sweet tooth! Hope you had a great week and have an ever better weekend!
