day 17: {mad hatters}

if i said we only made these at Christmas i’d be lying.  we made these a lot growing up.  they’re easy and yummy and you don’t even have to bake them!  some recipes call for peanut butter, but this recipe doesn’t.  however, you can add it if you like.   personally i like them with just plain cocoa.

{also known as no-bake cookies}

what you’ll need:

3 cups oats

½ cup cocoa

pinch of salt

1. in a bowl combine oats, cocoa, and salt and set aside.

 2 cups sugar
