No bake cookies help

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post :) and I need help! I made some "no bake" cookies last night and they have been sitting out overnight, my problem, they haven't hardened. They aren't soupy, but they aren't hard enough to remove from the wax paper. This is also the first time that I have made them. Anyone know what I may have done wrong, or do they just need more time?

Thanks,
Liz

Have you tried chilling them to salvage this batch?

I got the recipe from Food Networks page.

2 cups sugar
4 tbs cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tbs vanilla
3 cups oatmeal

I haven't tried to put them in the fridge, LOL there's no room! I guess we could always just eat them with a spoon. LOL

EDIT: I made room in the fridge, I'll see if that helps.

Oh well, the fridge didnt really help them either. Looks like we get to eat them with a spoon. Just wish I knew why they didnt harden.

I am going out on a limb here, but I would say there was too much moisture in the mix. You may have to cook the mix a few more minutes to get it to heat the sugars high enough to harden when they cool. When this has happened to me I scoop it all off the wax paper and spread into a buttered 9"x13" and bake in a 325 degree F oven and cut like fudge.
