Sweet Tooth Cure: No Bake Cookies!

ImageEver get a hankering for something sweet but don’t know what to make? Well, never fear, I think I have found your cure for the sweet tooth!

No Bake Cookies! They are fabulous and super easy to make!

All it takes is a few simple, everyday ingredients and you will have the cure to any sweet tooth in just 20 minutes

Here is the recipe:

You will need:

½ cup of butter (1 stick)

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoon of vanilla

4 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1/2 cup of milk

3-3 ½ cups of oatmeal

½ cup of peanut butter

Place butter, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil for about a minute. Continue stirring the ingredients as not to burn them. Remove from heat.

Next, combine in a large mixing bowl oatmeal and peanut butter with the cocoa mixture. Stir ingredients until combined.

Lay out wax paper, foil or even a cookie sheet. You can use any flat surface for this part! Drop a spoonful of cookies onto wax paper until cooled.

My motto is lick the bowl afterwards, snag a few for yourself and then share the cookies with your friends and family. Think of those friends who may be having a bad day and give them a cookie to brighten their day. You could even bag up a bunch of cookies, throw them in your backpack or purse and throughout your day hand them out to people who need a little pick me up (Warning- make sure those you hand them out to are not allergic to peanuts!). This is probably one of my favorite things to do after I have baked (or in this case, not baked) treats!
