no-bake cookies {a recipe and teacher's gift}

no-bake cookies

these were one of my favorite cookies when i was growing up.
my step-mom made them.
i hadn't had them for years...
until i met my best friend, tera, about ten years ago and she made them.
i slightly remember hearing the choir angels singing.
and then i knew we were meant to be friends FOREVER!

these cookies are the perfect mixture of peanut butter and cocoa and oats.
they literally melt in your mouth.

and they're SO easy to make!

and when you've made them all up and after they've cooled you can put a few in a cellophane treat bag for gift giving.
add a gift tag and a ribbon {or a scrap of fabric} and you're all set.
