No bake fudge cookies

I had these three little monkeys to amuse one afternoon and was trying to think of something fun we could do together.

It was also coming up to snack time, so I thought we would make a delicious and nutritious snack for us all to enjoy for when Lydia got up from her nap – ok, it’s not remotely nutritious, but it is delicious and we had a lot of fun as we threw together a batch of no-bake cookies. I love this recipe, so quick and easy and child friendly (so long as your child is old enough to know not to touch the mixture while it is hot).

I’ve got three little helpers to walk us thought the recipe.

Ingredients and Method

Put 3 cups of oats into a big mixing bowl

In a saucepan mix 2 cup sugar (they are supper sweet, so you could cut this back a bit, but I’ve never tried it), 1/2 cup milk, 1/4t salt, 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup margarine and 1t vanilla. Boil for 1-3 mins and then stir in 1/2 cup peanut butter. Take off the heat and mix with your oats,

Spoon onto greaseproof paper like this

Put in fridge to cool and harden and your almost done.

Final step?

Grab at least three spoons and lick as much of the chocolate mixture off them as you can 🙂

Here is the finished product
