No Bake Cookies are by far the favorite and most prepared cookie at my mom’s house. Partly because we love them so much and partly because they’re easy to make..no baking required! Oh, and if you’re like me, half the recipe gets eaten while warm with a spoon. That’s when they’re the best!

1. Stir the butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk together in a saucepan, and cook on medium heat until it boils. Boil for about 3 minutes.

3. Drop by spoonful onto waxed paper, and allow the cookies to cool and harden slightly, which takes about 20 minutes.
