No Bake Chocolate Cookies

The first time I was offered one of these cookies I was confused. How can cookies not be baked? Also, why did they look so funky? But I was all about trying things out, so I took a bite and I was sold. It has become one of my favorite little treats. And the fact that it is done in less than ten minutes is just the cherry on top!

Preparation Time – 5 Minutes

Cook Time – 10 Minutes

Yields – 24 cookies 

Ingredients

White sugar – 2 cups

Butter – 8 Tablespoons

Milk – 1/2 Cup

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – 1/3 cup

Quick cooking oats – 3 cups

Directions

Line a baking pan with parchment paper or wax paper and keep aside. In a saucepan, add all the ingredients except the oats. Bring to a boil and simmer for a minute and half. Stir to make sure the sugar melts and doesn’t burn.

Take off from the heat and add the oats. Mix well.

Now you are going to move fast and using one spoon to scoop, another one to scrape and drop, put this mixture onto the lined baking tray.

Let it cool for about 10 minutes or so. And they are ready!! These will harden a bit as they chill.

The texture will be soft and slightly crumbly! Make sure you move quick when you are putting the mixture on the tray so they don’t harden in the pot. Do not boil the liquid for long as that can reduce the liquid proportion we need for the oats.

So if you have guests coming over and want something simple to make, try this out. Most likely you will have all the ingredients in the house too! Happy NOT baking.

      1. 2 cups white granulated sugar
        1/2 cup milk
        1 stick unsalted butter
        1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
        Bring to a rolling boil for one minute. Turn off heat and add
        3 cups old fashion rolled oats
        1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
        1 tablespoon vanilla extract

        (Boiling time is important! Not long enough cookies won’t set but too long and they will be crumbly.)

        Yup that’s almost the same except I think the peanut butter needs more butter to set. And yup regarding the boiling and timing. Learned it the hard way!

      3. I’m a big big fan of peanut butter 😂 I know some people add peanuts or coconut but I’m not a fan of the crunchy peanuts in the cookie and I don’t like coconut. 😂
