No Bake Cookies

Save the peanut butter for your sandwiches.


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Mix together sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat and mix in cocoa, quick oats, and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment paper.


  • Boil for AT LEAST one minute. I usually add a couple seconds to be super sure. I've found that if you don't boil it long enough, the cookies won't solidify.
  • I recommend using parchment paper over wax paper. I don't know if it's just in my head, but they never seem to come out right no wax paper and they're always a nightmare to get off of the paper.
