I really was cruel not to give you this recipe when I posted about these cookies yesterday!
It's hard to know what the best thing about them is. Is it the intense chocolately-ness? Is it the vague feeling they may be slightly healthy because of the oatmeal? Is it that you probably already have all the ingredients on hand? Or is it the fact that from the moment you get the idea in your head, to the time you have a cookie in your mouth, takes only THIRTY MINUTES??
Yup. That's probably it.
"Heather's Favorite Cookies" In a large bowl, microwave
aka No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa (I use dark Dutch process)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy!)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups oats
Drop by spoonfuls on wax paper. Stare at them eagerly until they set.
