What to do on a dreary day…..make cookies of course! Chocolate No Bake Drop cookies are quick and so easy my ten year old son can make them! The fact that oatmeal is on the ingredient list makes me feel like these are “healthy” cookies therefore I can partake of many. Unfortunately, because of my skewed sense of nutrition, my mid section looks like a no bake cookie these days only in the blond version. Now with that picture in your mind, I am sure your appetite is at it’s peak to make cookies…..in the words of my eight year old “sow-wee”.
I wanted to show you two different scenarios. As you see the top pictured cookie is softer and is not as set up as the bottom pictured cookie. This comes from the initial cooking of the fudge, the second batch I cooked the fudge a bit longer and they set up faster. The taste wasn’t any different, but the texture was not quite as creamy and soft as the first batch. They all were eaten just the same, apparently I was the only one that noted the difference. I just wanted to share it with you. However the second firmer batch did photograph better, so go figure!
NOTE: These cookies are EXTREMELY addicting. If you are able to wait the 30 minutes for them to set up and cool before you actually eat one,then well….I just don’t know what to say other than…..that’s odd.
