No Bake Cookies...

No Bake Cookies
(I love this recipe to get the kids in the kitchen making fun food!)

1/2 cup milk (I use whole milk)
2 cups sugar
1 stick of butter (real butter works best - unsalted)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups old fashioned oats

Mix milk, sugar, butter and cocoa in saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 1 minute (no less). Turn heat off and add the peanut butter and I whisk until it is combined and then add the oats. Mix and drop from a spoon onto a parchment or wax paper on the counter or on a cookie sheet. Let them cool and get firm. If they are not hardening well you can refrigerate them to make the process faster.

There ya go... enjoy! :)


  1. Leann, I just chalked you up on the foodbuzz. So happy we're friends. I love your blog. I also feel that our children should learn how to cook and appreciate the value of home cooked meals vs. fastfood. Great post.
