No Bake Cookies!

5.0 based on 1 rating

What You Need:

  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Medium saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Wax paper

What You Do:

  1. Let the kids measure out the first four ingredients. Teach them how to read the measurements and talk about why a teaspoon is less than a ½ cup, etc. Doing measurements with the kids is a great introduction to math skills.
  2. Then have them combine all four ingredients into a medium saucepan. Let Mom or Dad put the saucepan over the stove and bring to a boil. Cook and stir occasionally for one and a half minutes.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Again, let the little hands be in charge of measuring.
  4. Show them how to scoop a teaspoonful of the dough and drop it onto wax paper.
  5. Now all that’s left to do is let the cookies cool until hardened - and your “no bake” cookies are ready to enjoy!
