Fudge-y chocolate no-bake cookies

Listen, I know everyone loves their Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies, but I didn't have any peanut butter around and I needed to make cookies asap....

Frantic (yes, some people get frantic when making cookies), I used chocolate chips instead of peanut butter, and these cookies turned out to be A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Just give them a try!

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter (I used soy butter, and they turned out just like normal with 1/2 the calories)
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used soy milk, and couldn't tell a difference.)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chip
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  1. In a saucepan, combine sugars, butter, milk, and salt. 
  2. Stir and bring to a boil (med. heat... you don't want to burn the sugar) for 1 minute
  3. Remove from heat
  4. Add chocolate chips and vanilla
  5. Stir until smooth
  6. Return to heat, add rolled oats 
  7. Remove from heat and cool slightly (don't allow to cool completely, or the sugar will harden before you're ready for it!)
  8. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper (or tin foil sprayed with non-stick spray if you don't have wax paper, as I had to do)

The result is beautiful, chocolatey goodness. These cookies have a fudge-like consistency, which tastes just amazing! Both a cookies and candy, you can't go wrong.

Don't be afraid to add some variation to an old favorite recipe... it might become a NEW favorite recipe! This is how I've discovered most of the foods I love, only problem is that I rarely have a recipe to follow or give out :)


  1. I LOVE these! Someone made them last year for a cookie exchange and I still think about them!
