Christmas Cookies: 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.
