Easy No Bake Cookies aka Gorilla Poops

After we went through the school lunch ideas, I had the girls make some no bake cookies.  This recipe is from a blog called “Six Sister’s Stuff”.  They have a post with 50 No Bake dessert ideas, how great is that?  These were really easy to make and the girls had fun making them and, best of all, they are delicious!

Mix and bring to a boil:

2 cups sugar

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons cocoa

1/2 cup milk

Take off burner and add:

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth

Mix well until peanut butter is dissolved.

Quickly add 2 cups of quick uncooked oatmeal and mix.  Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper or foil.  Let cool before eating (which turned out to be the hardest part of the recipe).

    • I’m not sure so I’m just going to guess but one of the girls did tell me that one time she made these and they never set and her sister said it was because she didn’t have the peanut butter ready to go right when it came off the stove so maybe that? Also maybe let it boil for a minute after it gets to a boil instead of removing it right as it starts to boil. Let me know if that helps! 🙂
