I used to make these cookies all the time, but then stopped and kind of forgot about them. Does that ever happen to anyone else? I made them this weekend and was reminded why we used to eat them so much: they’re addicting!
Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
1/4 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups quick oats
Before making the cookies lay out sheets of wax paper to drop the cookies to setup.
In a medium size sauce pan heat butter, sugar, milk and cocoa powder over medium high heat. Heat the mixture to a rolling boil and boil for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter until peanut butter is incorporated. Mix in oats one cup at a time, until all oats are evenly coated.
Drop heaping tablespoons on the wax paper and let setup for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
