Posts Tagged ‘No-Bake Cookies’

When I was in the sixth grade we had a few cooking lessons at school. This involved a hotplate and some wonderful mothers who came and helped a bunch of unruly youth make some tasty treats.

One of the things we made were no-bake cookies called Fudgie Wudgies. I remember many details about the day we made them like the smell of the chocolate, the taste of the delicious, rich treat. It may have been the last chocolate thing I ate before my mother decided to bring my world crashing down around my ears and declare that I was allergic to chocolate. I spent the next  12 years in a sad, chocolate-deprived state (thanks, Mom!) which is one of the reasons I am a complete chocolate addict now.

If you need a quick but tasty chocolate fix, these cookies are perfect. There are many variations on the basic ingredients, but these cookies are so yummy and take just a few minutes to make. Literally, you make them, clean up the mess and be sitting with your feet up in about 15 minutes time-frame.

Simple Ingredients


Combine sugar, cocoa powder, butter and milk in heavy saucepan.


Stir to blend ingredients over medium heat.


Bring to a full boil and boil hard for a minute, stirring constantly. If you don't stir, it could stick and scorch which would be tragic.


Remove from heat and add oatmeal, coconut and vanilla.


Drop by spoonful onto waxed or parchment paper. If you want them to be uniform and pretty, use the back of your spoon to smooth them out. I'd rather eat them than make them perfect, though. But that's just me - the chocoholic.


Ta-Da! Enjoy!
