They are a little too much like candy... they make me nervous. I don't do so well with candy.
Remember the Crystalized Ginger Incident? Don't know if I posted about that one... my second batch of crystallized ginger, I boiled the sugar a little too long, and destroyed my beautiful Le Creuset Dutch oven. Cracked the enamel. It was a tragedy. I'm gunshy about candy making.
I wanted to give it a try, though. Because I do so love to eat them, and I do so love a challenge. Everyone makes them. They can't be that tough. Right?
Because I bought some almond milk, I decided to try it in them. Here's for hoping!
Oatmeal Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a saucepan. On medium heat, bring to a boil for one full minute.
|Boiling away - stir constantly!|
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter (optional), vanilla and oatmeal.
Drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.
So - HELP! What did I do wrong? I want to make good No-bakes!
