Yum. Yum yum yum.

Had to wash my fingers more than once before I could take this picture.  No bake cookies, following a standard recipe, but using 50% regular cocoa and 50% Hershey's Special Dark cocoa, and then right at the end stirring in mini marshmallows. 

The recipe I found says to use a cup of marshmallows.  It didn't look like enough, so I stirred in another half cup or so.  During the brief period of re-opening the marshmallow bag, the original marshmallows continued to melt, so some are way more melty than others in the final cookies.  I guess I could have stopped at a half cup to let the cookies have a bit more stability and firmness, but they sure do taste good!

When you make no-bakes, do you use quick oats (finely chopped) or old fashioned (whole)?  I've done both over the years, depending on what's on hand.  This batch got a mix so I could finish off the carton of quick oats, and then the remainder was old fashioned.
