Temperatures are rising, so that means turning on the oven and heating up the house isn’t an option for me. So, the best way to feed the sweet tooth is making some of Momma’s No Bake Cookies!
2 Cups of Sugar
¾ Cup of Milk
1 Stick and 2 Tablespoons of Margarine
4 ½ Tablespoons of Cocoa
½ Cup of Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter
(You can use crunchy if you prefer peanuts in the cookie.)
3 Cups of Quick Cooking Oats
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
*These are gooey cookies! If you like a drier no bake cookie, you will need to use the following measurements for the ingredients instead of the measurements listed above: ½ cup of milk, 1 stick of margarine, only 4 tablespoons of cocoa, and just a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
In a large bowl, measure out oats and set aside. Then, place sugar, milk, margarine and cocoa in a medium size pot. Boil this mixture for 1 ½ minutes. Start timing after mixture reaches a full, rolling boil. Remove from heat. Pour over the oats. Next, add peanut butter and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls on waxed paper. Place in the refrigerator for cooling. Once they have set for approximately an hour, you can enjoy your gooey cookie with a tall glass of milk!
