I have used this recipe for years and I have found that if you boil the sugar, cocoa powder, margarine and milk for less than 2 minutes after bubbles are breaking the surface, they never really set up. You don't want to over boil either or they set up like rocks. The kids love to make these to take to gatherings. And no, you don't have to add peanut butter, and if you want a darker chocolate taste, you can increase the cocoa powder.

Do you know if the recipe turns out well using the powdered substitute sugars such as splend or stevia?

Junebug needs to look at the Chocolate No Bake Cookie which is #6 in the top Cookie Recipes. No peanut butter in it and its a no bake.

Do you have to add the peanut butter? Some of us can't have it, or don't like it.
