chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies

no bake cookies

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!

    I used to make these all time for my kids and I have also forgotten
    About them and have not made them in years. In my recipe we put in small marshmallows coconut and nuts and they were awesome. The marshmallows melt and that adds a lot to the cookie.
