No Bake Cookies

Well, the weather here in Central IN has been unbearably hot the past week and they are calling for temps near 100 degrees the end of this week – which makes the heat index like 115 or something crazy!!!

So, why turn the oven on when you don’t have to – right?!?!

In honor of our “No Baking” Linky, Miss Bug has been working SO hard on her No Bake cookies for Mini 4-H and I thought I would share! These happen to be one of my favorite kinds of cookies so it hasn’t bothered me one bit that she has practiced something like 6 times this summer which means something like 15 dozen No Bakes!!

They are simple to make, taste great, especially fun for kids to make and the best part – you don’t have to heat up the kitchen with the oven!

Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
2 C. sugar
3 T. cocoa
1/2 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. milk
1 stick butter
3 C. quick oats

Mix sugar, milk and cocoa in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil
Add butter and peanut butter
Remove from heat and fold in oats
Drop by teaspoonful onto waxed paper

And, she got a blue ribbon – she was so excited!
(P.S. All of the Mini 4-H’ers got blue ribbons but I don’t think she noticed!)
