Suz, I'm sure you could. "No-bakes" are an infamous recipe from my youth. We used to call them "chocolate oatmeal cookies" most of the time. I've made them so much, I know the recipe by heart:
Mix 2 cups sugar (2 cups!) with 3 Tablespoons cocoa in the bottom of a large saucepan.
Mix in 1/2 cup milk.
Turn on medium heat, add 1 stick margarine/butter (about 1/2 cup), and stir till melted.
Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Add 2 1/2 - 3 cups oats (not quick oats), stirring to coat
Quickly drop them by spoonfuls onto wax paper/cookie sheet and let sit until firm
Seriously, easiest cookies in the world to make and even my crazy omnivore co-workers have loved them.
The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol
