December 12, 2015, posted by Gina – These cookies aren’t just for Christmas but because they are no-bake they are easy to prepare during this busy time. These are my absolute favorite cookies and everyone else seems to loves them too! I have seen this recipe in many cookbooks but someone gave this one to me a while back.
2 cups sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup butter
3 cups instant oatmeal
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons cocoa
In a small saucepan bring sugar, milk and butter to a boil then turn the heat to low. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved. In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, vanilla and cocoa. Pour the sugar mixture in the bowl and stir until well combined. Drop by teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet. Cookies will harden as they cool.
That’s it!! I usually prepare these the day before I need them so that they have a chance to harden.
