Recipe: No-Bake Rocky Road Cookies

Take a poll of 100 people and they’ll tell you that the best part of school lunch, hands down, were those no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. There were various unmentionable nicknames for them but, oh, were they good!

I was reminded of those cookies and decided to give them a new spin, Rocky Road-style. And the result? Well, they still aren’t a very attractive cookie, but what they lack in looks is made up in major flavor. One bite and you’ll be flooded with those wonderful school-day memories.
