No Bake Cookies
I love easy recipes. The simpler something is, the more I like it. I don’t like dirtying a ton of pots and pans and cooling racks, and just want things to be simple. The best no bake cookies should be simple. They have very few ingredients, are done in a single pot on the stove, and then scooped onto wax paper to cool. That’s it!
These no bake cookies have the classic chocolate and peanut butter flavor you expect from classic no bake cookies (or at least what I expect from no bake cookies.) I’ve made this recipe so many times and have never had them turn out weird or too runny. They’re perfect, so trust the recipe.

Even if you’re tempted to add more oatmeal to these no bake cookies, don’t. I promise it’s enough, and I promise they’ll set up just fine. I know it’s hard to find a good recipe on the internet because there are so many bad ones out there, but I’ve tested this one extensively, so I know it works really well!
A lot of recipes will tell you that you need to use a candy thermometer and cook the mixture until it reaches a specific temp, but that’s absolutely unnecessary.
The hardest part about the Best No-Bake Cookies is waiting for them to cool. I basically want to eat the mixture out of the pot with a spoon, but you know…society has rules. So I let mine sit on the wax paper until they’re cool enough to pick up and scarf down. They’re so good! And I can eat them for breakfast since they have oatmeal in them, right?
