No Bake Cookies

Submitted by: Ian


  • 2 cups White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 3 cups Quick Oats
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Mix together sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat and mix in cocoa, quick oatmeal and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper.


  • Boil for at least a minute. I usually add 10 or so seconds to be super sure. If you don’t boil it enough, the cookies won’t solidify on the wax paper.
  • This recipe is refreshingly devoid of peanut butter which makes it nice for folks that might have allergies or just don't like peanut butter.
