Slice of Life - No Bake Cookies

Sometimes you need a cookie in a hurry.
No oven needed
Sugar, Cocoa, Milk
I've learned over the years margarine is key
Cookie setting success
Melt, Mix, Boil
Add
Oats, Peanut Butter, Vanilla
Drop on wax paper
Mounds of
Sweetness captured
Childhood memories - Parenting memories
Sweetness Enjoyed!

Today I found myself stopping and noticing while making Chocolate No Bake Cookies.  My mom use to make these and I remember thinking these were magical because they didn't go in the oven and could be ready quickly.  I'm discovering writing in my notebook is so helpful and then as I type up my thoughts, I might go back and add something to my notebook.

  1. I always loved No Bake cookies! One of the tings I really miss since I can no longer eat peanut butter.

  2. My favorite childhood cookies too! I think my mom taught me how to make these because I didn't have to use the oven. Yum ... now I want some too. May need to dig out the recipe and make some with my girls tomorrow!

  4. Sadly, I have never mastered the "No-Bake." I never know if they will be runny or grainy, but that doesn't stop me from trying.

    1. The secret is margarine - nothing else sets them up just perfect! Give it a try.

    1. What? Never heard of them - you've had them, I'm sure. Maybe out east they are called something else.

  6. First of all, yum!! How lucky your family is to have you bake sweet things for them.
    Second, I love how much you are stopping to notice and observe. Great writing stems from that ability.

  7. You know, I have never made No Bake cookies. I think I might try to do it with my daughter! They are yum. I like how the ingredients intermingle with the other text about this childhood favorite cookie.

  8. Right now, I have so many Girl Scout cookies that no baking is necessary. When I do bake, no-bakes are one of my favorites. Wait, can I call a no-bake baking? Interesting you find margarine the secret as I swear by butter. We are going to have to chat about this.

    1. Butter? I know when I tried a lighter butter they didn't set. Maybe you have a new plan for me with a new batch...well, calling them a stove top cookie sounds yicky!
