Chewy Chocolate No-Bakes
This is a fun variation of no bake cookies. They taste a little less sweet and a lot more chocolatey than the boiled kind of no-bakes.
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
5 tablespoons light butter
14 large marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups oats (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
2/3 cup (any combination of) raisins, diced dried mixed fruit, shredded coconut, miniature marshmallows or chopped nuts
Melt chocolate chips, butter, and marshmallows in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds Stir in vanilla. Stir in oats and remaining ingredients.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. Let stand at room temperature about 15 minutes before serving. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.
Makes about 36 treats.
