These Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies are fudgy and delicious and take 10 minutes to make.  They are perfect for school lunch boxes or for an after school snack!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick real butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 2 cups quick 1 minute oats


  1. Mix the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa together in a large pan over medium heat. Stir to mix together and bring to a bubbling boil.
  2. Boil for exactly 1 1/2 minutes from the time mixture starts to boil, and remove from heat.
  3. Add the oats, peanut butter, and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Drop mixture by large spoonfuls onto a parchment or foil lined cookie sheet. Let set for 5 minutes to set up and cool.
  5. Store in an airtight container. Cookies will stay fresh for 3-4 days.


  • The less time you cook these, the fudgier they will be. If you want extra fudgy, cook for 1 minute and 20 seconds instead of 1 1/2 minutes. They will be runny when dropped onto a cookie sheet but will set up very fudgy.
