{here today...gone tomorrow}

Yesterday evening I was a little bored!
There really wasn't anything to do and the Red Sox were losing, making the game too painful to watch!
I was in the kitchen looking for a a snack when I decided to make something that I haven't had in a long time!
No bake cookies! Have you ever tasted No Bake cookies? If not, you must - I repeat you must, copy this recipe and make them! They are absolutely divine!

No Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar
4 tbsp. cocoa
1 stick of butter
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. oats

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a pot over medium low heat. Keep stirring until all melted together and looks something like this:

This "melty" "chocolately" sauce looks good by itself! :) But be careful do not let it burn!

Then add in the peanut butter and stir that in until it is melted. Then add the oats. Then take off the heat and drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet (I line mine with wax paper/tin foil just to make sure they don't stick and clean up is a breeze!)

Place the cookie sheet into the freezer and let them set up for just a few minutes.
These are better at room temperature so.....if you can resist (which I couldn't)......let them sit a little while.

But I promise, once you make will become addicted and then pretty soon the whole batch will be gone, and you will find yourself making even more! :)

They were delish B... as evidenced by the empty bowl! Don't make them too often... we'll all be 300 pounds!

I love no-bake cookies!! I grew up with them and didn't really care for them for some weird reason - now they're my go-to recipe when I don't feel like cooking! Love your blog!! :)
