My Favorite (Super Delicious) No-Bake Cookies

I love these cookies, My Favorite Super Delicious No-Bake Cookie, are fudgy, crunchy and everyone loves them! But I don't make them all the time. The reason? They are my secret weapon...

Yes, this is the recipe I pull out when I need something delicious and need it NOW. Need is an interesting word, so maybe I should clarify, I don't need them personally like a craving (but trust me, they are definitely crave-worthy!). No these are the cookies I save for those times I need something for the family to enjoy and I just don't have the time to invest in a complicated recipe.

My Favorite Super Delicious No-Bake Cookies are easy to make, taking just minutes, and require no oven time. They are a saucepan cookie recipe which means only one pan to wash. Once they are dropped onto the wax paper to set up into little fudgy mountains of deliciousness, you are done. They do need about 30 to 45 minutes to set up and cool completely, so plan ahead if you need to package them as a gift. And yes, they do make a great gift to any chocolate-loving cookie eater!

The ingredients needed are basic, nothing fancy or out of the ordinary. Your own well-stocked kitchen will allow for these cookies to be made time and time again. Feel free to use either smooth or chunky peanut butter, what you have on hand is fine. And because I always advocate cooking with what you have, pecans make a great stand-in for the walnuts...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • sugar
  • butter
  • milk
  • dry unsweetened cocoa
  • peanut butter
  • vanilla
  • coconut
  • oatmeal
  • walnuts
  • mini marshmallows
You will also need the following:
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • large saucepan
  • silicone spatula
  • soup spoon 
  • waxed paper
  • thick towel
Now you are ready to begin!

My Favorite Super Delicious No-Bake Cookies
adapted from: a recipe found in a magazine so many years ago. 

Prepare the wax paper, before beginning to cook the chocolate base, see note below. 

2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c milk
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa

1/2 c peanut butter
2 t vanilla

1/2 c coconut
1 c chopped walnuts 
3 c rolled oats (I do use quick oats for this treat)

2 c mini marshmallows

In a large saucepan, bring the sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa to a boil, boil for 1 minute. 

Remove from heat, stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.

Stir in the coconut, walnuts, and oatmeal, mixing thoroughly, then stir in the marshmallows. 

Using a soup spoon, quickly drop on wax paper in mounds (rounded tablespoon). 

Let cool completely before packaging for storage or gifts. 

NOTE:  Put a thick towel down and then the wax paper. You won't leave white marks on your wooden tabletop. These cookies are very hot right after dropping on the wax paper.
