2 Minute No-bake Haystack Cookies
What could be better than an indulgent dessert that never needs to go into the oven?
These cookies take just minutes of work; most of the time is spent waiting for them to harden into the rich, nutty, chocolate delights that they are.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper or rub your pan with butter. Bring a 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup butter to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup sugar, stirring until dissolved. Don't let it burn. add content of bag into the saucepan with a spoon or a spatula stir constantly. Set timer for 2 minutes low heat, keep stirring until the oats are evenly coated.
Use a spoon to put the cookie dough onto the wax paper. Scoop some of the dough out using a tablespoon, then drop it onto the wax paper. The dough will be shaped like clumpy balls. If you want, you can flatten the clumps by pressing down on them with the back of the spoon. Let sit at room temperature until cooled and hardened, about 30 minutes ~ if you can wait that long!
