Last night I decided to download Google Chrome. Needless to say, it was love at first click!
But in the midst of my Chrome craze, I had that late night urge..... for chocolate! Now, if any of you have had this craving, then you know what I'm talking about. Nothing else will suffice. There is no subsitute for chocolate! Well, at least not in my book.
So, away I went, searching for the perfect peace of chocolate heaven. Only to find that I had nothing. Let me tell ya, it was a very sad night in my house.
Then out of the blue my fiance says, "How about those no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies you talked about making the other day?"
Ladies and gentlemen, my fiance is a genius!
This man has single-handedly restored my faith in the human race! No bake chocolate oatmeal cookies are super simple, and always cure that pesky late-night, chocolate craving!
So away I went to make some cookies!
No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2 c sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 c Evaporated milk (or plain milk if your out)
2 1/2 T cocoa
1/2 c peanut butter
2 t vanilla
3 c quick cook oats
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa.
Bring to a boil over medium heat. Let boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and oats.
(I was out of milk and refused to go to the store, luckily I had some dry milk!)
Spoon out quickly onto wax paper or aluminum foil. Cookies will harden as they set.
