Pudding No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Pudding No Bake Oatmeal Cookies
an alternative to regular no bake cookies
Only 5 ingredients needed
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cups butter
6 oz. (which is half a can) sweetened condensed milk
1 box (3.4 oz) instant pudding -- chocolate, butterscotch, your fav
3 1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
I forgot to only use half the can of cond. milk and poured the whole thing in (opps). So I ended up doubling the recipe. It worked pretty well since I don't know what I would have done with a half a can of sw. cond. milk anyway!
Next time If I double the batch I will reduce the
butter to 1 1/4 cup and see if they set up better?
Combine sugar, butter, and evap. milk in sauce pan
bring to boil and then boil 2 minutes.

Mix oatmeal and pudding in big bowl
I used chocolate pudding...
(remember the pic shows the recipe doubled)
Pour in the sugar/butter mixture and mix well.

Drop onto cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.
Allow to set. Mine were very sticky and not very set so I popped the tray into the freezer. Turns out we like them better frozen.
Awesome summer treat!
I actually liked them better than traditional no bakes. Hubby loved them too but thinks regular no bakes are still a touch better. It's nice to have more options!
We can't wait to try these with butterscotch pudding
I'm pretty sure they'll be my favorite!
I made these during dinner and it still only took me about 20 minutes for a double batch!
Anyone know what the substitute is for sweetened condensed milk? That's the only ingredient that I don't always have on hand...

Is that instant pudding or the kind you have to cook for a few minutes?

One time my hubby really wanted no-bakes but I did not have any cocoa powder so we just substituted the cocoa powder with one small box of instant chocolate pudding - lets just say that we know make them this way all the time. It would be like a happy medium for you to try sometime - plus you don't need the special canned milk (I never have it on hand either)!
