Recipe: No Bake Chocolate Macaroons

I love church cookbooks and have many in my cupboard. This one is called "Seasonal Sensations" and was compiled by the St. Joseph Ladies' Guild in Shawnee, KS published in 1991. This recipe can be found on page 59. I was looking for a no-bake cookie recipe as my oven desperately needs to be cleaned :(

1 stick margarine (I used real unsalted butter)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick oats (I used 4 cups)

Boil margarine (or butter), sugar, cocoa, and milk for 1 minute. Add peanut butter and oats. Stir and drop spoonfuls onto wax paper to cool (I cooled mine in the fridge).

And, of course, the dog wanted to get her apron on and help!

  2. I just made this last night, so it is fun to see someone who made it, too!
    I had not had these since I was a kid, they are really good, huh?
    I substituted rapadura for the sugar, my family loved them.
