Here's my recipe for No-Bake Cookies:
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup milk
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
Mix sugar, cocoa, butter, milk, and salt in large saucepan.
Heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils for 3 minutes.
Tip: I started on low and gradually worked my way up to about a 6 so it wouldn't burn.
The key (as my hubby so lovingly reminded me) is for the mixture to be super smooth and not "grainy."
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Stir in oatmeal.
Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.
Let cool (cookies will harden).
Makes about two dozen.
