no bake cookie recipe...

well since 2 people asked for the recipe i figured i should post it ;) i got this out of an older 1970s fundraiser cookbook but you can find about a million variations on but here's the one i love ;)

  • 2 cups white sugar (oh yeah real healthy lol)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 cups of quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  • in a heavy saucepan (i use a large cast iron one) bring cocoa, margarine, milk, and salt to a rapid boil for 2 minutes
  • add quick cooking oats, peanut butter, and vanilla; mix well
  • working quickly, drop by the teaspoons (or however big you want them) onto wax paper and let cool

some tips make sure its just 2 minutes you let them boil anything over can cause them to burn and anything under can make them take a whole day to cool and dry out!! and once it starts boiling its very helpful if you have everything measured out and ready to go or you are gonna burn them cause these things are done fast also its good to have you wax paper out and waiting for you cause they can dry out in the pan if you are to slow!! enjoy ;)

Thank you so much for this recipe. I am going to make these cookies for the boys this Sunday. They are going to love them because this is something that they can help me cook in the kitchen.
