Fun Kid Snacks Remembered


I was blog browsing today and came across a fun post on Your Fun Family. It's about remembering favorite summer memories when you were a child, and summertime snacks you enjoyed. Melissa describes the ice cream sandwiches (yum!) she made with her mom, and so it got me to thinking about some of my favorite snacks as well.

I loved making cookies without having to bake them in a hot oven on hot summer days. I haven't made these cookies in I don't know how long, but because of Melissa's post today, I think I will do these later today with my kids.

So here's my version of No Bake Cookies. Enjoy!

2 cups sugar
1/2 cups butter
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
3 cup oatmeal.
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
wax paper

Directions:

Have your wax paper spread and ready for the cookies. This is important because after removing the mix from the heat, you need to get the mix on the wax paper quickly for setting purposes.

Boil together sugar, butter, cocoa and milk for approx 2 1/2 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla and oatmeal. Stir quickly. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Put into fridge to harden. Enjoy in about an hour.
