An Easy No-bake Cookie for Gift Giving and Holiday Parties

I love a recipe that makes a lot of anything for little effort. This is one of those things! This is traditionally called a "Boiled Cookie" and favorite amongst our Cajun friends. It really is sort of a candy and it is quite addicting! I didn't have a picture of the cookies, but found this one online. I like the idea of putting it in a jar like this with a pretty bow for gift giving.

Boiled Cookies

1 stick of butter
4 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1 c. milk
dash salt
6 c. quick oats (not regular oats please)
3 Tbl. vanilla
1 c. Peanut Butter
3/4 c. pecans (optional)

Mix butter, sugar, cocoa, milk and salt. Bring to a boil, boil for 3 minutes. Mix quick oats, vanilla, peanut butter and nuts into a separate (and very large) bowl. I use the largest stainless steel bowl I own. Pour the hot chocolate mixture on top of the oat mixture and mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.

Makes 4-5 dozen.
