I've heard of the wonders of no-bake cookies, but haven't ever tasted them. Why you ask - well, for starters, my mom never made them! And, they often contain peanut butter, which is a big allergen.
So, I found a recipe from a family friend for no-bake chocolate goodness that does not use peanut butter!
Boy. These might be my new best friend. That is, when I'm craving quick chocolate :)
3 T butter
1/2 C brown sugar (packed and slightly heaping)
4 T cocoa
1/4 C milk
2 C Old-Fashioned oats
Mix the butter, milk, brown sugar and cocoa together in a saucepan.
Heat mixture over medium heat until boiling; stirring constantly. Allow mixture to boil (while still stirring) for ~1 minute.
Remove from the heat and stir in the oats. Stir until mixture begins to harden.
Then, use a spoon to drop cookies onto waxed or parchment paper.
Allow to cool/set up. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
Refrigerate cookies to keep fresh.
