Also, what makes this a fun recipe for a Christmas Cookie Exchange Recipe is what you name it. My personal favorite names are "Reindeer Poop" and "Coal"(if you want to be a bit cleaner about it. :))
How to Make Reindeer Poop - A No Bake Cookie
These are ingredients that we typically have on hand, so I can whip these up really quick. Literally, one reindeer poop cookie recipe makes 4 dozen cookies in less than 20 minutes. For a cookie exchange party or large crowd, this is PERFECT! Oats, Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Peanut Butter, Salt, Butter and Tahitian Vanilla.
Add the butter, milk, cocoa powder and sugar to a sauce pan. Melt and boil for one minute. Stir constantly.
I'm not sure if everyone knows about this kitchen measuring tool, so I took a picture of it. This is a Wonder Cup Adjustable Measuring Cup, that I've had for 20 years. It's my go-to tool for measuring peanut butter, mayonnaise, sour cream etc., things that don't want to come out of cups. With the Wonder Cup, I can take a knife or spoon and drop it into the cup, then you push the bottom and it dumps the correctly measured food into the bowl. - Easy!
There is my blob of peanut butter, salt and oats. I love the Wonder Cup Adjustable Measuring Cup!
Once I've combined the mixture in the sauce pan with the dry mixture, setup my dropping station. Here I use Wax paper and two spoons.
And here they are: Reindeer Poop Cookies - No Bake Cookies. :)
