This post was inspired by Tina at Mommy's Kitchen . As I checked my Facebook today, she had a post that said she was making Chocolate No Bake Cookies. Well, I LOVE no bake cookies, and so do all of my kids. Although if I told them I was making no bake cookies, they wouldn't know what I was talking about. They call these little delicacies "Gorilla Poop Cookies". I knew that I couldn't make just a single batch with the kids coming home from school soon. My eight year old son can eat a dozen in seconds and top it off with a cold glass of milk.
Anyway, I looked over Tina's recipe. It seems to be a little different than mine. Her recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder, and my recipe calls for 1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder. I'll have to try them both ways. But today, I used my own recipe. I made my kids very happy. Right when they walked in the door from school, they could smell the rich chocolate smell of "Gorilla Poop Cookies". At least I was able to use the cookies as an incentive to get their jobs done quickly.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oats, rolled or quick
In a saucepan, combine and heat sugar, butter, milk, salt, and cocoa. Bring to a rolling boil. Take off heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and oats. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Place mixture by teaspoonful on to the wax paper. Refrigerate until firm.
If you've never had No Bake cookies before, give this recipe a try. It won't disappoint you! And it is very easy to make! I hope you enjoy!!!
