My all-time favorite cookie recipe! Just a few ingredients and no time in the oven for these delicious No Bake Cookies. Yes, I cook and bake every day, but my favorite cookie is a No-Bake Cookie!
Finding the best way to make No-Bake Cookies:
These No-Bake Cookies can sometimes have a mind of their own. I have made them for years and was never able to get them right every time. Sometimes they would set and sometimes they stayed wet. They still tasted amazing wet but no one wants to have to use a spoon to eat cookies.
I tested and tested and I think I have a no-fail recipe. Just follow the easy steps in order and watch the time. I found that in the past I let them boil too long to or not long enough. And even adding in too many ingredients at one time changed the outcome of my cookies. This is the most consistent recipe steps I have ever found to getting perfect No-Bake Cookies every time.
Give them and try and let me know how they turn out for you!
How to make No-Bake Cookies:
Step one: In a large pot add sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa powder.
Step two: Slowly bring to a boil while whisking. I usually keep it on medium heat to reach a boil.
Step three: Once at a boil allow to boil for one minute I set a timer and stopped the whisking and allow it to just boil.
Step four: Once the minutes is over then remove from heat and add in oats. Mix well. Add in peanut butter, mix well. Last, add in vanilla extract and mix well. You don’t want to add everything at the same time and make sure to add them in that order.
Step five: Lay out parchment paper on the counter and spoon out the dough into cookie shapes. You want to move from pan to paper quickly so your cookies don’t dry in the pan. Allow setting for 15-30 minutes.
