Best Ever No-Bake Cookie Recipe

I love no bake cookies.  They only take a few minutes and they're yummy.  I have been making variations of this recipe for years and have just recently perfected it!

Best Ever No-Bake Cookies

1/2 C. brown sugar
2 T. water*
Cook over medium high heat.  DO NOT STIR.  Swirl the pan as the sugar melts and begins to boil.

When it turns darkish brown add:
1-2 Tbs. cream*
Stir until smooth.  This makes a caramel sauce.

1 stick butter
Stir until smooth.

1 1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. milk*
Stir well.

3 Tbs. cocoa powder
3/4 C. peanut butter*
1/2 tsp. salt
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.

Stir in:
3/4 C. Nutella*
1 tsp. vanilla*
3 C. quick oatmeal
If it's too dry, add more milk.  Mix well.   Drop by spoonfuls onto aluminum foil.  Let cool for a few minutes before eating.

*  I don't really measure these items, this is just an estimate.  = )  I suspect that I use more milk than the recipe calls for...

  1. My apologies... when I re-formatted this recipe, I got the amount of brown sugar wrong. I have now fixed it. Sorry for the inconvenience!!
