Yum! Chewy and chocolatey and oatey (yes that's a word ;-p ) and good. They are quite sweet, so you might want to cut back on sugar; I didn't personally. This makes a fair bit but 5 dozen is for very small cookies. Easy as can be and great-tasting too! (Something you see in "bakeries".)

I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong. These cookies never solidified, even when I put them in the refrigerator. The taste was delicious but the consistency was very poor. I'm disappointed.

No kitchen is complete with out this recipe. The ingredients are common, save maybe the cocoa powder, and fixing them couldn't be easier. Maybe too hot for little helpers, they are very portion controllable if spread in a thin layer on wax paper and cut into the "correct" sizes. A very pleasant treat that saves well. Assuming you have any left over to save.

Very easy to make, the flavor is pretty good.

I've loved these cookies since I was little...this recipe is great! I made it using the microwave and they turned out really well. I think that I might cut the sugar a little bit...otherwise, perfect!

Very tasty! I used a little less butter & a little more milk with great results.

This recipe sounds almost exactly like Mama's No Bakes that I always make. They're SO easy and delicious! It's extremely hard to keep everybody's hands (including mine!) off the cookies while they are cooling! Mmm
