Can I just say that I love the Secret Recipe Club? I love checking in every week to see what each group comes up with. This is my third month, and I have the hardest time deciding which recipe to make.
I was matched with the Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch. She tells lots of great stories about her family and friends. I bookmarked about 10 different recipes and kept going back and forth about which one I was going to make. I couldn’t decide if I should make something with chicken, a soup, or a dessert. Let’s be serious– I ended up picking a dessert and a cookie no less. I am on a cookie kick- fourth cookie post in a row!
This cookie is different. I never turned on my oven for this one. I love no-bakes, and it took me back to middle school home ec and making no-bakes at home for extra credit. Yes, I loved home ec, and I was the dork who did extra credit. BUT– how could I turn down extra credit when it meant baking? I guess I was always meant to be a food blogger
Without further ado, here’s the original recipe for those delicious no-bakes! And please check out the other wonderful bloggers with the Secret Recipe Club- Group A.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tbs cocoa
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut
- 2 1/2 cups quick cook oatmeal
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- Difficulty: easy
Mix sugar, butter, salt, cocoa and milk in large saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes. When it forms a soft chocolate candy ball, then it is ready.
Quickly stir in vanilla, peanut butter, oatmeal and coconut. If it starts to harden too quickly, stir in just a little more milk to loosen it up. Spoon out onto wax paper by tablespoons. Let cool.
