I like my no bake cookies to be soft, not falling apart in my hands. I like them full of chocolately goodness. So the secret for me is not to boil them for a minute as the instructions often say. I bring them to a boil, then turn off the heat and stir for a minute before adding the oats. Perfect every time. I promise.
