Donatella @ Donatella Style and Trish @ Homemade Quilts by Granny asked for the recipe for the "No Bake Cookies" I pictured last week.
There are many recipes out there but I think this is the one Kelsey used. I think that a lot of candy is like divinity and the weather affects how it turns out.
2 cups sugar
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
3 1/2 cups uncooked oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter. Bring to a boil over high heat. Stir constantly for 1 minute. Take off the heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Add oats and peanut butter. Stir well and drop by tablespoons on was paper.
Pretty simple. I know for a fact that she used some type of margarine because she does not live at home and is a frugal shopper. She probably does not even realize what real butter is. We always used margarine when I was growing up. You know large family--penny pinching.
Let me know if yours turn out. I may have to whip up a batch myself today.
Take Care and God Bless!
