Fudge Oatmeal No Bake Cookies
No bake cookies provide a quick treat without heating the kitchen up by using the oven. My mom used to make these cookies for school lunches. They were one of my favorites back then, and a recipe my grandchildren still enjoy today. Not only are these cookies quick, easy, and no bake, they are also peanut free which makes them an ideal treat for sharing in peanut-free zones like schools or group gatherings. The original recipe calls for quick oats, but I have made them with rolled oats, too. When using rolled oats, they turn out a little bit sticky, but they are delicious!
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 stick butter
- 3 1/2 cups quick oats
- Mix sugar and cocoa in pot
- Add milk, butter, and vanilla
- Stir over medium heat to soft ball stage (about 3 minutes)
- Remove from heat and add oatmeal.
- Drop cookies onto wax paper by teaspoons.
Fudge Oatmeal Cookie Tips
Place your wax paper on the counter before you make the cookies, because once you add the oatmeal, you have to work fast. Cookies solidify quickly and if you're too slow, the last of the batch will come out of the pan in crumbles.
If this happens to you, save the cocoa crumbles and use them as an ice cream topping or a flavorful way to turn your favorite yogurt into a special treat when you're craving chocolate.
