Skills Attained: no-bake cookies
No Bake Cookies are one of my favorite stand-by recipes in my arsenal of desserts. This is such a simple recipe, and for some reason, I generally have all of these ingredients on hand. The peanut butter-chocolate combination pleases any crowd!
In a medium saucepan on the stove over medium to high heat, melt the butter and then add the sugar, cocoa, and milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 1 minute.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla. (I like to have the peanut butter measured out before the mixture comes to a boil.) Add these ingredients first and stir so it melts and combines evenly.
Using the teaspoons, quickly drop the cookies onto the waxed paper before the mixture hardens.
Refrigerate approximately one hour or until the cookies set.
