No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Does anyone else ever have a craving for chocolate & peanut butter? They are a combination made in taste bud heaven! When I was a kid, both my mom & grandma used to make these delicious chocolate / peanut butter / oatmeal cookies that I still LOVE to this day.

Over the weekend, I got a craving for some chocolate & peanut butter, so I whipped up a batch of these addictive treats in less than 10 minutes.


* 2 cups sugar
* 4 Tbsp cocoa
* 1 stick butter
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1 cup peanut butter
* 2 tsp. vanilla
* 3 cups oatmeal


1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, butter & milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently. Bring to a boil and let boil one minute. Remove from heat.

2. Immediately stir in peanut butter, vanilla & oatmeal.

3. Drop rounded spoonfuls of mixture onto parchment paper or non-stick foil.

4. Allow to cool and harden. Store in an airtight container.

5. Try not to eat them all.

My-Tid Bits:

* This recipe makes about 48 cookies. I actually halved the recipe when I made it over the weekend because there was NO WAY The Hubs & I needed 48 cookies. You can double the recipe just as easily.

* If you don't have parchment or non-stick foil, just spray a little cooking spray on regular foil.

* And if you want to be REALLY sinful, crumble up one of these cookies and put it over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. HEAVENLY!

  1. I made these tonight....DELICIOUS!!! I didn't have cocoa so I used semi-sweet baking squares instead and they still turned out great. I halved the recipe, so it just needed one square of chocolate.
