No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Tears filled my eyes and horror filled my heart. I had no courage to open that page and see what’s written there. I knew it was not good news.

My hands trembled while I was forcing myself to read the contents. My heart was pounding.

Hubby dear put his hand around me and gave a small squeeze to tell me silently that we will face this together.

I read the contents, felt myself relax a bit.

I turned to my hubby and said, ‘Honey, this month’s power bill won’t kill us!’

But god knows – next month’s bill might give me a heart attack. So I am not taking any chances and going stove top way to make these delicious cookies. Make these and don’t worry about your electricity bill!

Recipe Source: Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

Makes 35 – 40 cookies

Ingredients:

  • Sugar                                   :            2 cups
  • Cocoa                                  :            1/2 cup
  • Butter                                  :           100 gms
  • Milk                                     :            1/2 cup
  • Oats                                     :             3 cups   
  • Peanut Butter                 :              1/2 cup 
  • Vanilla Essense              :               1 tsp

Method:

  1. Measure the oatmeal and peanut butter and keep it ready before you start the actual cooking. Keep wax paper layered plates also ready.
  2. In a large thick bottomed pan, add the sugar, cocoa, milk and butter. Mix. Heat the pan, stirring the mixtu re.
  3. Bring it to a boil and let it boil for 2 whole minutes. Take off the heat, add the peanut butter first and give a mix and then add the oatmeal and vanilla.
  4. Mix everything together and drop spoonfuls into the wax paper. Cool for half an hour at least before digging in.

Note : I found these to be a bit too sweet and might reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup next time.
