There’s nothing better than a recipe with no bake in the title.

Especially when it’s a zillion degrees here in Texas and turning on the oven sounds like the worst idea in the world.

And a no bake cookie with chocolate?

And peanut butter?

And oatmeal?

Yes, please.

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me and my family loves it and it’s perfect for a treat on a lazy summer afternoon.

And the best part?

    Universal favorite recipe! Haven’t made these for years…thank you for the reminder! I’ll just need people here to eat them so I won’t because they are so yummy! Thanks for sharing the Walmart membership! Who knew?!

    Oh my goodness! We made those after school all the time! We called them “Tibbie Drops” because......well, they kinda look like...tibbies! I need to call my 8th grade best friend right now!

    This is a favorite and I am even asked to make them for family gatherings. Older folks call them cafeteria cookies because were often made for school lunches.... a few years ago though! All need to take a cookie and milk break every day! I think we would see more smiles.

    These are the best cookies and have made them several times over the years. Thank you for reminding me.

    This looks similar to the recipe that I use! Super yum. I will offer a word of caution .... since they are made using butter, they get soft in hot temperatures so be aware of that if you are serving them at an outdoor soiree in the heat. Ask me how I know.

    Fun Fact: I’ve used this recipe for years & my family loves these cookies. But, we call them.”cow plops.” If you think about it…

    No Bake Cookies are the first item I learned to make- at 9 years old! My recipe is almost the same except for after boiling for 1 minute then I add the vanilla, 1/2 cup peanut butter and 3 cups instant oats. Drop onto waxed paper.

      Same! First recipe I learned to make because evidently my mother didn't trust us with a hot oven, but was comfortable with an open flame??!! :D She also made us cut the sugar in half, but they were still awesome....especially with extra crunchy peanut butter. The best part was how the vanilla would bubble up after adding it to the hot chocolate! :D

    Love these. My mom passed her recipe on after I got married. W e called them “One Minute” cookies. After my husband passed I would make them and just eat it straight from the pan. True comfort food. Don’t do that any more! Your pictures show them on cooling racks. Is that just for presentation? Mine would go thru the holes if I did. Your directions say waxed paper so was a little confused.

    Ann, Yes! They are just for the picture! We actually put them on wax paper to set up and then we transferred them to the cooling racks for the pic! happy day! KariAnne

    I was looking for something to "bake" without having to turn on the oven and these were perfect. Just got done making them and they're fabulous! It made 31 two inch cookies. Thanks so much!! :-)
