This has been a classic in my house for years. For those who's cookies didn't harden, try them again. They need to be "dryish" not super gloppy when you put them on the waxed paper. If they are too wet, just add 1/4 cup or so more oats. I always use regular oatmeal, never quick cook as they seem to absorb more moisture and I don't usually have consistency issues. The sugar can be cut back just a bit too, if you find them too sweet.

its an easy to do recipe but it has a tendency to be too sweet , you kinda get sick of it after a while so controll the sugar and the cocoa and it'll be fine

I read the recipe wrong and used rolled oats instead (I'm a beginner!) quick cooking oats but they still turned out nicely. Very yummy and rich--easy to make too!

This recipie works perfectly I've tried others and the consistancy never turned out right but these were perfect just like my granny use to make for me. My whole family and all my friends love this recipie!!!

These were exactly what I was looking for! I substituted old fashioned oats for the quick (if you like them a little chewier), and omitted the nuts and chocolate. If you make them big & wrap them individually, they're just like they sell in all the convenience stores! What a hit, thanks!

I love these cookies! Chocolate and peanut butter without the baking - what can be better or easier! I made them for my husband and he thought these were too sweet. My grandmother called these Chocolate Candy cookies when I was growing up. I usually melt the butter in the sugar and milk plus I use 1/4 cup of cocoa. I also add in an optional 1 cup of coconut to mine. That makes them form better. It's hard to let these chill in the fridge, you want to eat them right away.

These cookies ended up tasting like mushy gooshy cookie dough. They did not get hard and were way too sweet.

I used mixed cooking oats and added coconut and they were delicious, needless to say they did not last long in my house
