Kate Shungu
No-bake cookies are a sweet treat straight from grandma's recipe box. Don't miss the marshmallows, which form gooey puddles (!) or the shredded coconut!

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 cups quick oatmeal
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • ½ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Instructions
 

  • Place the milk, butter, sugar, and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, whisking occasionally. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, peanut butter, vanilla, mini marshmallows, coconut, and walnuts. Pour the liquid mixture over the top and stir to combine.
  • Drop 2 tablespoons of the mixture onto parchment paper. Repeat with remaining mixture to create approximately 24 cookies.

Notes

Make sure to drop the cookies onto parchment paper to ensure they don't stick! Wax paper or foil would also work.
