No Bake Fudgey Rocky Road Cookies

No Bake Fudgey Rocky Road Cookies

Since today is a rainy/snowy day, I wanted to make hot chocolate... And then I remembered... I had a recipe for some No Bake Cookies. I thought to my self, that would be GREAT with hot cocoa, and a nice treat for Family Home Evening tonight. So, I pulled together all of my ingredients to make sure I had everything. Then all of a sudden... TADA!!! It's done... That simple, that easy. :)

1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
6 cups granola
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/3 cup peanut butter or sunflower butter
4 cups sugar
2 sticks of margarine or butter
1 cup milk
2/3 cup cocoa
4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup peanuts or sunflowers (optional)

set out foil or wax paper on your table or large surface (i.e. countertops). Set aside measured, peanut butter/sunflower butter, vanilla extract, granola, mini marshmallows and oats.

In a large sauce pot combine over medium heat sugar, butter, milk and cocoa. constantly stirring mixture until comes to a rolling boil.

Remove from heat and add in the peanut/sunflower butter, vanilla, granola, mini marshmallows, and oats, the Peanuts/sunflowers if desired.

Stirring quickly incorporating all items. Once incorporated drop by heaping spoonfuls on to prepared surface... foil or wax paper. Cool and store in a cool, dry place.

Makes A TON of cookies. :) this is a double recipe, depending on how big you make your cookies, will depend on yield. Should make at least 4 dozen cookies.

Verdict! these cookies are the BOM Diggity! I know I'm lame, anywho, This is a yummy treat. I tried to make this so those with kids who are allergic to peanuts could still make this yummy treat. Substituting the sunflower butter and sunflower seads.. If you make homemade granola then this is good to use that too. You can substitute quick cooking oats for the granola if you don't have granola. I just thought the crunch of the granola would be delish in this dish. :) Let me know what you think.. :)

  1. I love this recipe for after school snacks or even a treat in my kids lunches. It is so easy to make and so little hassle. One batch of these will last about 3 days in my house. These work for incentives for them to clean their chores so they can have one of these CRACK cookies. I hope your enjoying these as much as we do! :)
