Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter O

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Outrageous Oatmeal Fudgies! Who doesn’t love No-Bake cookies? Forget about spending hours in the kitchen. This kid-friendly favorite can be ready in a flash. The toughest part is deciding if you want to top them off with a piece of candy corn, a walnut half, a maraschino cherry, or leave them plain. Either way, they won’t hang around long because…..(repeat after me)…Everyone loves peanut butter and chocolate!

  1. My husband has told me for years about the no-bake cookies his mother made out of oatmeal and cocoa, and, thinking, “How good could they be?” I never bothered to try to find a recipe. Now I have one and they look wonderful. He’ll be so surprised!
