No Bake Cookies?!

When I asked hubby which was his favorite cookie, he thought for a while and then said,
"those drop chocolate cookies you made".  I said 'those sugary cookies?' and he nodded!
I asked the son the same question and his answer--"those chocolate no bake cookies!"

I can't believe!  All these years, I've been working away on fancy cookies and they
like these no bake ones--gee whiz!  Well, he does have a point though--
no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies are delicious and easy to make.
Sometimes, I'll add some peanut butter.  The kids could hardly wait for the cookies to firm up and sometimes were wiping the cookies off the paper with a spoon!  And everyone wants to lick the pan!

Here goes--the recipe
