  • 4 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk


1. Line tray or cookie sheet with wax paper.

2. Combine butter and milk in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until butter is melted when stirred; stir in sugar and cocoa until well blended. Microwave at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes; stir. Microwave at HIGH an additional 1-1/2 to 3 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is hot and bubbly on surface; carefully stir in salt, vanilla and oats.

3. Drop by tablespoons onto prepared tray; flatten slightly. Let stand until firm. If necessary, cover and refrigerate until firm. Top with FOOLPROOF BUTTERSCOTCH FUDGE CUT-OUTS, if desired. Makes about 36 cookies.

FOOLPROOF BUTTERSCOTCH FUDGE CUT-OUTS: Line 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan with foil. Combine 3 cups (almost two 11-oz. pkgs.) HERSHEY'S Butterscotch Chips and 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) in large microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute; stir. Continue heating 15 seconds at a time, just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Immediately spread evenly into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Use foil to lift fudge out of pan; place on cutting board. Peel off foil. With small cookie cutters, cut into favorite shapes. About 2 pounds fudge.

    This is a newer version of the old recipe I remember that was prepared on the stove top in a sauce pan. Would really like to find that "old" recipe again!!

  • 2 stars


    the old fashioned recipe done on the stove top is better. I think there are too many oats in this recipe... I only used three cups and I liked it a little bit better. But I don't think I would make the recipe again.

  • 5 stars


    This is the easiest and best recipe ever. 2 changes I make - Use less oats. Just start stirring them in and when it gets a good consistency stop. Mix in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter after the bowl comes out of the microwave. It will melt in and make the cookies extra delicious.
