Chocolate Peanut Butter no Bake Cookies

By on March 19th, 2016

Looking for a quick and easy cookie recipe to keep the kids happy? Are they bored with your normal chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, or your brownies? Is the kitchen to hot for you to even think about turning on the oven? Tired of taking normal plain sugar cookies, or even worse – gasp – store bought cookies, to your family functions and gatherings? Then try these Chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies. They are always a favorite at any party of gathering this writer makes them for, and they are great to make with your kids.

You’ll need:

2 cups of sugar

6 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1 stick of butter

½ cup milk

1 ½ cup peanut butter (smooth works best as the chunky will make your cookies crumbly)

2 to 2 ½ cups of instant oatmeal, or the 1 minute cooking oatmeal.

And some wax paper for putting your cookies on.

In a saucepan combine the sugar, cocoa powder, butter and milk. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted and everything is blended smoothly. Let the mixture boil for one minute, then remove from heat. Add the peanut butter to the mix and blend until smooth again. Add the oatmeal and stir until well blended.

Laying out the wax paper on a cookie sheet, take a teaspoon full of the cookie mix and place it on the wax paper. Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes, or until completely cooled. Enjoy.

This recipe makes about 24 cookies, depending on how large you make the cookies.

For some added variations you can…

Add some chopped walnut for and extra crunch.

Use more Oatmeal for more texture to your cookies.

This writer makes smaller batches, so butterscotch, vanilla, nuts, and some raisins can be added into the cookies so everyone has a flavor they like.
