unsweetened cocoa powder
quick cooking oats
crunchy peanut butter
The only thing I changed in the recipe was using creamy peanut butter vs. crunchy. It is a great fast remedy for that feeling of "I-gotta-have-chocolate-quick-or-I'm-gonna-hurt-someone"!!! haha
This is my second no bake cookie recipe I've tried and the same result. When cooling they did not harden like they are suppose to. No sure what I am doing wrong. I followed both recipes to the "T". Does anyone have any suggestions?
These came out great, and my boys love em' too! I only had a half stick of butter on hand, so I used 1/4 cup shortening as well. For those that were finding they were to runny, make sure you boil the full minute, and then after all ingredients are mixed in, I stirred them in the pot for a little while to help the "dough" cool and harden a bit, as they were runny until they cooled a little in the pot. Then drop them on your wax paper, they should form great at that point.
I've tried a few of these recipes and this was the only one that turned out like it was supposed to. I also used creamy peanut butter instead of the crunchy. The whole family loves these treats.
I've been making these cookies since I was a little girl (we always called them 3 minute or No Bake cookies). I also use creamy peanut butter and I sometimes immediately pour the mixture into a 13x9 pan (lightly greased) to make bar cookies, instead of the drop cookies.
I had been looking for the recipe for months and I was glad to find it. They turned out wonderful just like the ones my aunt used to make when I was little.
Only change in ingredients I made was using creamy peanut butter. I wasn't sure when to start timing my minute - when you first start seeing bubbles or when it's boiling rapidly....so I started when I first started seeing bubbles and cooked it 1 minute 20 seconds. I also followed a previous reviewers suggestion of letting the mixture set up in the pot before dropping them on was paper.
I had the same problem some others mentioned. I followed the exact steps let boil for a full minute and no matter how long I waited they never hardened. I tried putting them in the fridge but they stayed the same consistency as play doh and were very sticky. I would not make this again
