Oats: You need ¾ cups of quick cooking oats to help bind the cookies together.

How to Make No Bake M&M Cookies
First, prepare a cookie sheet by lining it with wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
Next, in a medium size saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, and milk. Proceed to bring the mixture to a boil and let it boil for 1 minute. Be careful to only let it boil for 1 minute, or else the cookies could turn out to be dry and crumbly.
Once removed from the heat, add the semi-sweet chocolate chips to the pan and stir until they have all melted completely. Mix well to combine all ingredients.
After that, add in the coconut, walnuts, oats, and vanilla extract. Mix everything until it is thoroughly combined.
Scoop & cool
Continue to scoop about 1 tablespoon of the cookie dough and place them onto the prepared cookie sheet. Then top with 2-3 M&M candies, using a mix of regular-sized and mini M&M’s.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 hours until set.
Serve and enjoy!
Can I freeze chocolate no bake cookies?
Yes, these cookies can be frozen. This is great for pacing yourself on the sweets and getting them to last longer. Just freeze them in an airtight container for up to 2 months after they have set.
Which oats are best for no bake cookies?
Different recipes will call for different kinds of oats, but to make the best No Bake Cookies, you should use quick cooking oats. Using different kinds of oats will change the texture of the cookies, and they may be more dry than you’d like. As this recipe’s main ingredient, it’s important to get the right kind of oats.
How do you store no bake cookies?
These cookies can be left at room temperature for 4-5 days in an airtight container, or if desired, you can keep them in the fridge. This is optional as they do not NEED to be refrigerated, but it will help them to hold a firmer shape if you choose this route.
How long do M&M no bake cookies take to set?
These cookies should be fully set in about 15-20 minutes after shaping on a baking sheet. The time really will depend upon how hot the mixture was, how warm the room is, etc. You can move the baking sheet to the fridge to chill and set the cookies more quickly if desired.
