Chocolate Friday – Not baking…

Lisa over at Stop and Smell the Chocolate is taking a blog break… but I needed some chocolate, and I wanted something simple.  These are cookies that I think most everyone has a recipe for, but I find that some have a different recipe than me.  I like to make these when we travel as they are quick to make when I need to be packing not baking (and the oats make them a little healthy, right???).  Also good when it’s too hot to turn on the oven – but not if it’s humid… little suckers will NEVER set up in that weather!

No Bake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 3 T. cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk

Bring to boil for one full minute, then add:

  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I never add these)

Mix and drop by spoon onto wax paper.

  1. This is so not the post I needed to read this morning. 🙂 I soooo love no bake cookies!!! I can eat them all by myself. I use this recipe too. I have never added the coconut though. Hmmm…may have to try that. I’m the only one that eats it so I may have to set some aside just.for.me. Tell Mr. J he took a fabulous picture. 🙂

  2. Ooh! I recently discovered a similar recipe at the Brown Eyed Baker but there was no coconut in them…they have peanut butter…I’ll have to try these too!

  3. We must have been on the same track with these cookies. Your has coconut and mine just have extract though. Funny that we made the same thing 🙂
