Tasty Tuesday Blog Party - No Bake Cookies


I've been invited to join in the blog carnival, Tasty Tuesday Blog Party, held at Kim and Tim's ForeverWherever.com.

I really enjoy participating in blog carnivals, so I decided to go through my list of Top Ten tried and true recipes. Actually, 2 of my favorites, Jerri's Brownie Recipe and Texas Cake have already been posted on this blog. So here is #3, my personal favorite:

NO BAKE COOKIES

Combine in a heavy 4 qt. saucepan:

3 C sugar

2/3 C butter (use real butter - it's worth it!)

1/2 C cocoa

1 C evaporated milk

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then boil for 2 minutes. Take off the heat.

Stir in until melted:

2/3 C peanut butter

2 tsp. vanilla

Add to above mixture:

1 C coconut

4 C quick oats

Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or aluminum foil. These cookies will harden after about 15 minutes. If the weather is very humid, they don't harden as well, so don't use these as something to make on rainy days! I make them at Christmas time, but I love them in summer, too!

For more great recipes, head on over to the blog party, that Southwestern Soup that Kim is featuring looks yum!

My mom always used to make something similar to this. I should try your version; my husband loves coconut!

Lynn said...

I make something similar only without the peanut butter and the coconut. This sounds like a tasty variation :)

Brooke said...

my mother makes these and they are delish!! :)

Ann said...

Mmm, this is one of my favorite cookies! Now I really want one--so much for the diet :)

If you don't have an immersion blender, a regular blender works too. It breaks up the lumps--I'm not sure if a whisk would work to do that or not.
