Candy Cookies

I work with Jane who has wonderful family recipes. This is just one of them.. It seems some people call them no bakes, but their traditional name seems to be “Candy Cookies”. I made them for the first time tonight. Unbelievably easy, no baking and so wonderfully good. Thanks Jane for sharing your family recipe with me.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 Tb unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2DSC_0369 (2) cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 2 heaping Tb peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups salted peanuts (optional)

In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, butter, Cocoa, salt and milk. Stir occasionally until the butter melts into the other ingredients. Increase heat to medium high, bring to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir the oats, peanut butter and vanilla. (If you’re adding the peanuts, add them now also) Make sure everything is combined well. Place the mixture on wax paper by the tablespoonful. Let cool thoroughly before serving or storing.
