CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER NO-BAKE COOKIES

These classic no-bake cookies were a staple of my childhood, and a quick summer treat to share with friends and family.
With 15 minutes of your time, and a little bit of love, these are impossible to mess up!

TIME ALLOTTED: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS (Makes about 20 cookies):

  • 1/2 cup Peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 3 cups Oats (Old fashioned oats)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Measure oats into a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, combine butter, milk, sugar, peanut butter, and cocoa.
  • Stir together over medium heat until fully combined.
  • Once it is boiling set the timer for 4 minutes, continue to stir during this time.
  • Continue stirring, making sure to scrape the sides of the pan as needed.
  • When the timer goes off, turn off the heat and add vanilla. Stir.
  • Add the oats and stir until completely covered. Work quickly as these will harden as they cool!
  • Scoop small dollops onto wax paper, using a greased cookie scoop, or simply a kitchen spoon.
Let fully cool.

Enjoy your no-bake cookies!
