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
- Mix together sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
- 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.
