  1. I wanted to make these cookies but I couldn't get in touch with my mom for the recipe. This is exactly how I remember them growing up. A few tips for people who said these were a gooey mess or very crumbly: When ever you heat Sugar, you are using the science of candy making, - Read more ...
  2. I love no-bake cookies but since I'm allergic to peanuts it's difficult to find a recipe that works. This one is great though. I'd suggest cooking it 2 minutes after it starts boiling though or the cookies tend to be super sticky and don't taste as good. Otherwise good recipe!
  3. I used splenda instead of the sugar and they turned out great!
  4. So Good, and ready in less than 15 minutes if you put the cookie sheet in the freezer. I would recommend spraying the wax paper with non stick spray before dropping the cookies on it.
  5. I boil this for 6 minutes - I also use 5 tbsp cocoa. If it starts to get crumbly stir in a teaspoon or two of hot water and they should set up fine.
  6. Great alternative to the no bakes with peanut butter. Very yummy.
  7. I LOVE this recipe and have been making it since high school. It is so easy and the dirty dishes are minimal. I make just a couple of small changes. I boil the cocoa powder with the sugar milk and butter. I also add 1 cup of peanut butter and reduce the amount of oatmeal - Read more ...
  8. This is the worst recipe I have ever used. I made it twice thinking I did something wrong the first time. The cookies don't set up at all. We couldn't even eat them because I had to spoon them off the wax paper. Finally I threw them in the trash...TWICE! Horrible cookies!
  9. This is an excellent recipe especially if you are not a peanut butter lover. My family loves the cocoa taste! It is very easy to make. The key to making it great is to remember to let the mixture come to a boil and THEN boil it for one minute longer. Great treat!
