Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Seeing those recipes for the Oatmeal Raisin cookies made me desperately want some of those chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies. Could you find me a really good recipe for those?

- Pavlov Wannabe

A: Dear Pavlov,

This is my all time favorite recipe for No-Bake Cookies. I got it from a roommate my junior year. It calls for Peanut Butter in the final step (as you'll see) but I never add it. Pa Grape loves them without.

In medium pan combine:

2 C. Granulated Sugar
½ C. Milk
1 cube butter/margarine
¼ C. cocoa

Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 2 minutes
Remove from heat and add:

2 ½ C. Oatmeal (I think Rolled oats are the best for this)
½ C. Peanut Butter (Optional)
2 tsp. vanilla

Spoon onto wax paper and allow cooling until solidified.

Enjoy!
Love,
Ma Grape
