Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

This cookie ranks up there with all the other classics like chocolate chip, sugar, and peanut butter cookies.

Brandon and I were sitting at the table talking about things our mothers made that we still love today. You know, the recipes that never get old and will live on from generation to generation. Both our moms made Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies when we were growing up. Now it is our turn to make it for our kids to enjoy.

Brandon has the recipe that his mom wrote for him in a little notebook. So for our house when we crave these Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies he is the one who makes them. Once he is done spooning them out onto the wax paper we can’t even wait more than 2 minutes without sampling. No, they haven’t formed up yet and the chocolate is still hot but who could resist?

  3. Start a 3 minute timer once the hard boil starts.
  4. Stir constantly for the 3 minutes. *Your arm will get tired from stirring but soldier on! The 3 minutes is really important.
  5. Pour boiling mixture into your large mixing bowl with the oats mixture and stir together immediately.
  6. With heaping spoonfuls, individually lay out the cookie mixture onto wax paper. Do this quickly because the mixture will start to harden.
