  1. I've been having issues with these not turning out too! I have a different version of "rolling boil" every time I do it. According to the blog All in Good Food he decreases the sugar to 1 and 3/4 cup *this effects the sugar concentration* and brings to 230 degrees F under med-high heat. Just - Read more ...
  2. This recipe is messed up. I went digging in my closet to find my orginal no-bake cookie recipe. When I compared the two recipes, I found that they had the same ingredients; however, the ratios and the cooking processes were different. The oatmeal has to be added before the peanut butter because the peanut butter - Read more ...
  3. These turned out absolutely perfect! Don't be afraid to use whole oats if you don't have quick oats....doesn't make a difference. I made it EXACTLY as stated. I have made no bakes in the past and had them either set up to fast, or never set up. I would say the directions to this recipe - Read more ...
  4. These were a hit and easy to make! I used splenda skim milk light peanut butter and light margarine and they still tasted great.

  8. My entire family loves these cookies. My family begs for them! I would suggest using 4 TBsp of cocoa, butter rather than margarine, smooth PB and 3 1/2 cups of oats. Small changes but they make a world of difference. I have tried every which way and this is the best. If you do it - Read more ...
  9. I love this recipe because it has more cocoa than other ones. It has 1/4 c instead of 2 tablespoons. This made a huge difference in the turn out. They turned out more rich and not so dried out as those recipes that call for only 2 tablespoons. My family loves these cookies and everytime - Read more ...
