Just like I remembered them! Easier than I remembered also. Thanks!!! A hint: before you spoon onto wax paper, let mixture cool for just a moment so it's easier to control size of cookie.

WAY too sweet, even after I added an extra 1/2 c. of oatmeal and reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups! I recommend using 1/2 the amount of sugar (1 c.) and upping the oatmeal by a 1/2 a cup. They were, however, very easy to make--a perfect dessert to make in the summer when it's too hot to turn on the oven. If I reduce the sugar next time, they'd easily get 5 stars.

This must be one of the easiest cookies to make, and it has been a family favorite in both my husband and my families for years and years. A lot of people complain that the cookies don't always set up well, but I found if you follow the advice in this recipe about bringing it to slow boil and not boiling for more than 90 seconds, I get perfect results every time. I use creamy instead of crunchy peanut butter.

be sure to bring to a rolling boil.

Excellent, but I was eating these non stop and felt I needed a lower in calories version. I have not added up the calories in this version, but I use a lot less butter, sugar, and peanut butter - so I assume it is lighter :-) Less Sweet, Fewer Calories, BUT nearly as good version 1/2+ cup sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/8 cup butter Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 1/2 minutes Remove from heat Stir in: 3 Tblsp cocoa >1/4 cup peanut butter 2 1/2 cup oats 1/2 tsp vanilla drop on a cookie sheet and let cool

WOW! What a blast from the past!! I've always loved these cookies, and now my children do also. Wish I would have had this recipe years ago. I microwaved my ingredients for 3 1/2 min. stirred then microwaved for another 3 1/2 min. then added pb, oatmeal and vanilla. Texture of the cookies were perfect. Thanks for the recipe Sherrie!

WOW!!! I made no bake cookies that turned out right!! This has rarely happened in the past, LOL. Actually, I made a batch from a recipe I had, and they wouldn't set, as usual. I was determined to make some that would set. I came to my favorite recipe site and found this one... perfection!! I'm throwing all my other no bake recipes away! Thanks to the original poster of this recipe!!!

I made a double batch with my toddler - ended up with about 95 cookies. I ended up with cocoa and oats on my floor, but it was worth it! The cookies are perfect, and we both had fun making them.
