Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

  • Last night I was sitting on the couch with my hubby, and he said, "You know what sounds really good is no bake cookies," or "poop" cookies as he referred to them as a child.  I headed downstairs and sure enough, I had some oats.  When I came back upstairs I told him "Ask, and ye shall receive!"  20 minutes later these cookies were cooling on the counter and he was taken back to his childhood (and mine for that matter!)

  • It's fun to make those childhood favorites that bring back lots of memories :)  It's one of those recipes I am sure to find in any ward or neighborhood cookbook, because everyone loves them and reminds them of years past.  Enjoy!

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a full boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.
