But no matter how mad I could become, I still cannot deprive my nieces from experiencing what Christmas is like. So we adults may not be having something to share on the Christmas Eve cause I really don't plan on preparing anything but discreetly, I am considering of making this no bake oatmeal cookies JK has suggested for me to make just for the little innocent girls.
Here's what's needed and how to do it:
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 2 tablespoons cocoa (optional)
- 4 ounces butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or any kinds of nuts will do although it's optional)
- 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
Combine sugar, milk, cocoa and butter in a medium saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and chopped nuts. Add oatmeal and stir to blend it thoroughly. Dropped by teaspoonful onto waxed paper. Makes about 4 dozens no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies.
Easy and simple... try it!
