Classic No Bake Cookies bring back so many happy memories of my childhood. This recipe has the ideal chewy, fudgy texture and the traditional chocolate peanut butter taste combination. They’re also probably the simplest cookies on earth to make, in my opinion.

Flavors of Chocolate with Peanut Butter

The recipe is virtually exactly the same as the one I used to make when I was younger, although I did double the amount of cocoa and peanut butter because, well, why not? I can never resist this delicious combination!

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Quick oats
  • Peanut butter

Making No Bake Cookies

  • First, prepare 29 cupcake liners or line two baking pans with parchment paper (or simply spread a long sheet of parchment onto the counter). Then, add sugar, butter, cocoa powder, and milk to a 2.5 to 3-quart pot.
  • Set the saucepan on the largest burner on the stove at medium heat and start whisking. Cook and whisk frequently until it comes to a boil. Once it does, stop whisking and let it simmer for one minute without stirring.
  • Once the liquid has been taken off the heat, immediately stir in the oatmeal, peanut butter, and vanilla. And mix thoroughly by stirring.
  • 2 Tbsp of the mixture should be dropped onto the parchment paper at a time (a medium cookie scoop works well here or just use two large spoons).
  • Enjoy Classic No Bake Cookies after they’ve set. Setup can be sped up by transferring to the refrigerator. In an airtight jar, keep the cookies at room temperature.

Advice for Making No-Bake Oat Cookies

Before starting to count down those 60 seconds, the liquid must begin fully boiling (bubbling up in the middle), not merely coming to a simmer (where the edges of the mixture bubble up). Use only fast oats; don’t use old-fashioned oats, in my opinion. The cookies won’t be as tender and won’t be set up nearly the same way.

The dish should ideally turn out perfectly for you, but if they’re a little too wet the next time, boil them for 15 seconds longer; if they came out dry, boil them for 15 seconds less. The length of time the liquid is cooked affects how the dough sets up and how moist the cookies turn out.

No Bake Cookies

Although I like creamy peanut butter, you can substitute hard peanut butter in this recipe by adding an additional 1/4 cup to ensure that the consistency is unaffected. Rather than margarine, use actual butter. It has an unpleasant flavor that will affect the flavor of the cookies, and because water has been added, the final product won’t be as delicious. Then, follow the recipe’s instructions and add a little extra cocoa and peanut butter; this makes the Classic No Bake Cookies a little richer than you recall. I also reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup from what was called for in the recipe.
