These no–bake cookies are made with oats and chocolate, along with peanut butter and other ingredients. So easy and super fast to make. Chocolate Oatmeal no-bake cookies are a true classic!
Every time I make these I think of my Aunt Dorothy. Her cookies are the best and she doesn’t use a recipe. One day when she was over for a visit I ask her to make them and I wrote down the amounts she used.
My Aunt Dorothy’s recipe
Makes 15 – 18 cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk. Bring to a hard boil, and let boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and add the following ingredients.
1/2 cup peanut butter to 3/4 cup (I think Jiffy is the best)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups oats
Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper, parchment, or aluminum foil.
