Chocolate Boiled Oatmeal Cookies
Ok, so you want a homemade sweet treat but don’t have an oven? Then try these no-bake cookies, they are delicious, simple, and you can customize them if you want! All you need to make is a stove or hot place and some table space.
· 2 cups sugar
· ½ cup cocoa powder
· ½ cup milk
· 1 stick (8 tbsp) butter
· 1tsp vanilla
· 3 cups oatmeal
· Foil or wax paper
1. Combine the sugar, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan and cook on medium-low heat (keeping the temperature cooler keeps it from scorching). Make sure you keep an eye on the pan; once it starts to get near boiling, you should stir it often.
2. Boil for 2 minutes then remove from heat
3. Stir in butter, vanilla, and oatmeal
4. Once well mixed and butter’s completely melted, drop by spoonful onto the foil or wax paper (I think wax paper is better but either will work) and let harden—if you can resist eating a gooey spoonful then and there!
And that’s it! But it you want to add some other flavors you could add
½ cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
¼-1/2 Nutella—nutella tends to be moister than peanut butter so you might add a bit less to keep the consistency
Chopped nuts or dried fruit—I’ve never tried it with this but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.
