No Bake Cookies

The Buttercream is backkkkkkk!!!!

After a wonderful summer spent instructing sailing on a scenic lake near Augusta, Maine, I have returned to the metropolis, aka the much more populated region of NYC, for my junior year of university. This past summer was one of the best I have had. I spent it with my dear sister, Alexandra, whom I haven't seen in quite some time. She lives in Miami... and I'm much farther North. I was outside everyday and I have a fantastic tan, sooo let's see how long it lasts. I made loads of new friends from all over the world, but now I am back and ready to bake.

Currently I'm dripping with sweat because my apartment is not air-conditioned and New York decided it would fabulous to have a little 90 degree hot spell. So it's amazing that these cookies even hardened. I'm sure my next post will be much more weather appropriate. I'm thinking frozen margarita popsicles. You feel me?

Without further adieu, here is my recipe for No Bake Cookies:

No Bake Cookies


4 tbsp. Cocoa Powder
2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Unsalted Butter (1 stick)
3 1/2 c. Oats
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 c. Milk
1 1/4 c. Peanut Butter, creamy


1. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter with sugar, milk, and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

2. Once at a boil, add in peanut butter and vanilla. Keep stirring until thoroughly mixed and then continue to heat for 30 seconds to a minute.

3. Remove from heat and stir in the oats, until it is thoroughly mixed.

4. Before it begins to cool, place tablespoon sized scoops onto cookie sheets covered in wax paper. They can be close together because they won't spread out.

5. Let the cookies cool/harden for about an hour. While doing so, use a spatula to lick out any extra batter from the pot.
