So I was really unhappy with the No-Bakes I made a week-ish ago, and so my awesome friend Nick found a recipe for them and tried it out, and gave it to me the other day, and he said they turned out really well, so I decided to try it at midnight tonight, lol. Well, I am such an idiot, I didn't check beforehand, and didn't have enough oats for the recipe, I had about half!! And this was after I already put the sugar in the pan with the butter!!! So, I scooped out about half the sugar, to sort of half the recipe, but I couldn't do anything about the butter, so I left everything else the same, and just added the liquid to the oats in a separate bowl. I still thought they were going to come out too mushy, but I just had one and they are setting perfectly, and they are not dry at all!!! I used my Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa, but next time I will use regular. It doesn't seem to melt very well.
EASY AND WONDERFUL NO BAKE COOKIES
2 cups white sugar
4 teaspoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 3/4 cup quick oats
1 cup coconut
In a medium size saucepan combine sugar, cocoa, milk and one stick of butter. It's best for butter to be at room temperature.
Melt butter at medium heat and stir all ingredients together. Continue to stir until all ingredients come to a boil.
Once boiling, remove from heat and allow to stand for one minute.
Add vanilla and peanut butter and mix well. Stir in oats and coconut.
Put a large sheet of aluminum foil or wax paper out on the counter and place little scoops of your new treat on it. Serve while still warm or at room temperature.
* I did not use coconut, neither did Nick, and he didn't use Peanut Butter.
