These Classic No-Bake Cookies are made with staple ingredients and are incredibly easy to make. Loaded with oatmeal, peanut butter and cocoa powder, these cookies are perfect for an easy dessert! Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don’t boil long enough, the cookies won’t form properly.
