When I was almost done with all of the cookies, I realized that there was a particular taste that our cookie batches were missing. We didn’t have any chocolate! This had to be remedied and remedied quickly. Unfortunately, I was pretty tired of baking at this point. Fortunately, one of my favorite chocolate cookies requires no baking.
I have many memories of this cookie appearing on plates of cookies that had been dropped off by friends and family. No Bake Chocolate Cookies! Or as Ryan referred to them, “the oatmeal blobs of chocolate.” Yes, it was time for some oatmeal blobs of chocolate.
It was actually kind of difficult to find a recipe. Finally, I found this one. (What would I do without the Food Network?) The recipe was really simple and the smell of the peanut butter and chocolate melting together was just fantastic. If you are going to make these, add the oatmeal in small batches because it gets pretty difficult to stir pretty quickly.
The final outcome of the oatmeal blobs of chocolate? Delicious.
