No- Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies were a great childhood memory for me. It was one of the first recipes I asked my mom for after I left home, because I couldn’t wait to start fixing them for my little family. My husband who didn’t used to care for sweets even loved them. In fact, it’s such a favorite, it just so happens to be the cookie we leave out for Santa each Christmas.
