This post originally published on a previously-owned blog and was imported here to simplify my life. My family eats much healthier than this nowadays, but I include this post for memories and history. I hope you enjoy the content!

All you need is a little heat!  Oh, and all the ingredients…

I love making these because they’re so easy and quick.  No-Bake Cookies have always been a common dessert in our house and of course I am partial to my mother’s version of the recipe:

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. cocoa (unsweetened)
3 c. quick oats
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
Boil sugar, milk, butter & cocoa for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in oats, vanilla & peanut butter (quickly).  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper & let cool.

Trust me when I say you can’t just eat one – better just pile up a plate like this one!

Here I am about a year ago making the same cookies for the White Elephant Christmas party I threw last year in Peru.  Our Peruvian friends loved it and they did an amazing job at grasping this weird American tradition!

I see there are at least 4 flashlights out on the counter…no surprise…electricity was often taking its own little vacation…  Oh, and, no.  We did not paint the cabinets pink. They came that way!  🙂
