Avery's No Bake Cookies



As promised yesterday: Avery’s No Bake Cookie Recipe

In Maximum Risk, my heroine, Avery, is cut off from her life due to the bad guys wanting her dead. To get her mind off the danger she bakes a batch of her mom’s No Bake Cookies-the only thing she can bake since she isn’t a cook.  Quinn gave them his approval and he comes from a family where his mom cooks Sunday dinner and leaves Tupperware in his fridge when he’s away-so you know they’re good J So, here’s the recipe for Avery’s No Bake Cookies from Maximum Risk. Enjoy!

Avery’s No Bake Cookies

½ c cocoa
2 c sugar
½ c milk
1 stick butter
½ c peanut butter
½ tsp. vanilla
3 c quick-cooking oats
1)      Mix sugar, cocoa, milk and butter in a saucepan and boil for 1 minute
2)      Take off heat
3)      Add peanut butter, vanilla and oats.
4)      Lay out on wax paper and let cool before enjoying!

  10. I'm pretty sure I commented about this recipe yesterday, or two multiverses collapsed on me. However, let me say, or say again, that I think this recipe has useful application in real life....when your electricity goes out.

  13. We made these when I was a kid. I always called them haystacks because we'd wad them up so they looked like little haystacks. But the haystacks my husband loves aren't the same as these--they involve those Chinese noodles in a can and chocolate chips. I like these better!
