One of my favorite no bake cookies from childhood - old-fashioned, no-bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies you can stir together in minutes, with ingredients you probably have on hand.
I used old-fashioned oats, since that was what I had in the pantry. Many recipes specify either quick-cooking or old-fashioned. Since quick cooking oats are cut into smaller pieces, they will create a less chewy cookie.
I also used Dutch-processed cocoa, again since that was what was in the pantry. This helped give the cookies a darker color and richer flavor.
Be sure that your mixture is really boiling before you begin to count your boiling time. This is probably the trickiest part of boiled cookies. If you don't boil them long enough, they may not set up and too long can cause them to be hard and grainy.
It's likely they may not set up if you make these no-bake cookies when it's really humid. These cookies are not a fan of humidity! If they don't set up, it's not the end of the world. They'll still taste delicious!
If this happens, just eat them with a spoon, or keep them in the refrigerator so they stay firm.
