Cookies that don't look so good...but taste good!

I haven't decided if I'll actually post one of my pictures of this recipe to this blog....

Let's put it this way - this recipe for "3 minute No-Bake" cookies from is GREAT. Easy, tasty, and fast to make. I'll definitely make them again but...

They look like little piles of poo!! Being not baked they even have a little bit of a "poo sheen" to them as I called it last night. They look like that in person, and even worse in a picture. I am all about taste over appearance but this is one of those times where I possibly prefer to keep the appearance safe in my home and not out on the internet. Not even the Quaker Oats website has a picture on it....that probably should have told me something.

Bottom line though, these are very good, and even richer than I thought they'd be and I will make them again despite their unappetizing appearance. I just hope no one looks at my husband funny if they see him take a few out of his lunch bag today!

3 Minute No Bake Cookies

2 cups granulated sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) margarine or butter
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/3 cup baking cocoa
3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)

In large saucepan, combine sugar, margarine, milk and cocoa. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue boiling 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat. Stir in oats.* Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered.

*If using old fashioned oats, cool mixture in saucepan 5 minutes.
