Chocolate Drop Cookies

I'm posting this because Barrie Summy is having a cool little Recipe Round-Up for July 4th -- Independence Day here in the US. Check out her blog for other awesome recipes as well. This should be a ton of fun.

This is my mom's fantastic recipe for her "No Bake Drop Cookies." They are so fantastic and rich and yummy...yeah. Enjoy!

2 cups sugar

2 1/2 tbsp. cocoa

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup milk

2 1/2 cups oatmeal (not cooked)

1 tsp vanilla

  1. Bring 1st four ingredients to a rolling boil.
  2. count 90 seconds SLOWLY
  3. take mixture off fire
  4. Add vanilla, stir
  5. add oatmeal, stir really well
  6. drop teaspoonfuls on buttered or waxed paper
  7. cool for 30 mins.

These look delicious. My 8 year-old will love making them. Especially the counting part! Thanks for joining in, Jason!

hmm no cook, I like that. It is so hot these days I rather not have the oven on if I don't have to. I will try these for sure. Thanks.

hey jason, i was just looking at your recipe when your post came in on my blog!! i make these ALL THE TIME, we just call them no bake cookies, except my ingredient measurements are a little different and 1/2 cup of peanut butter is added, it takes the edge off of the sweetness...they are addicting aren't they!!

Barrie: Yeah, I had a lot of fun making these with my grandma when I was little.

chantel: I definitely like the fact that you don't have to turn on the oven. Our house is hot enough as it is.

plane ride: your welcome!

christine: hey! That's pretty funny. Hmm...I'll have to try adding some peanut butter sometime, it sounds good.

annie: Me too. We're gonna make some tonight.

by the way, that deleted comment was mine. I just posted a comment that said "barrie:" and that was it, so it was kinda a waste of space.

And with the oatmeal added I don't even have to feel guilty. Great recipe. I'm taking these cookies camping. Thanks.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

This was a recipe my mom made as well, plus one of my kids' teachers made it in grade school and called it Dinosaur Food. (We still call it that.) The cocoa was dirt, the sugar crushed bones, etc. It also had peanut butter. Yum!

Jason said...

gabe and alyssa: Your welcome! I my mom said they're like Pringles, "You can't eat just one." Ha.

Alison: That's really cute!
