Not a Fancy Name No Bake Cookies, a festive foods rewind

During the next few days, I will share some delicious recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday gatherings that may occur at your home with family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

The recipe originally posted March 18, 2013.

I love these cookies, but I don't make them all time. The reason? They are my secret weapon. Yep, this is the recipe I pull out when I need something delicious NOW. We should clarify, I don't need them personally like a craving (but they are definitely crave-worthy!). No these I save for those times I need something for the family to enjoy and I just don't have the time to invest in a complicated recipe.

tip:  Put a thick towel down and then the wax paper. You won't leave white marks on you wooden table top. These cookies are hot right after dropping on the wax paper. 

Not A Fancy Name No Bake Cookies
adapted from: a recipe found in a magazine so many years ago. Original author/creator thanked many times over!
Makes 2 1/2 - 3 dozen drops

Prepare the wax paper, before beginning to cook the cookies. 

2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c milk
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa

1/2 c peanut butter
2 t vanilla

1/2 c coconut
1 c chopped walnuts 
3 c rolled oats (I do use quick oats for this treat)

2 c mini marshmallows

Bring the sugar, butter, milk and cocoa to a boil, boil 1 minute. 

Remove from heat, stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.

Stir in the dry ingredients, until mix thoroughly, then stir in the marshmallows. 

Quickly drop on wax paper in mounds (rounded tablespoon). Let cool. 

Then the only thing left after washing the pan, is to enjoy enjoy enjoy!
