Christmas No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Trials and tribulations tend to squeeze the artificiality out of us, leaving the essence of what we really are and clarifying what we really yearn for. — Neal A. Maxwell

This recipe is one of my all time favorite cookie recipes.  I used to mail these cookies to your dad when he was on his mission.


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 stick (8 Tablespoons) of butter
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk and cocoa. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue boiling 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in oats and vanilla. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered.
