You know what’s a good combination? Chocolate and peanut butter. You know what’s an even better combination? When something is chocolate, peanut butter, and EASY! Because really, what can beat that? This no bake chocolate cookie recipe is so easy to make and tastes delicious. Perfect as a snack or dessert, and you only need a handful of ingredients!
- 1 stick butter
- 1 Cup peanut butter
- 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 1/2 Cups sugar
- 1/2 Cup milk (I use whole milk)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/2 Cups Quaker Quick Oats
In a medium sized pot, combine the butter, milk, cocoa, and sugar over medium-high heat. Bring this to a boil and boil for 2 minutes or so stirring continuously.
Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla and peanut butter until smooth. The peanut butter should melt fairly easily into the mixture.
Add the oats (I add about a quarter cup at a time) to the mixture until well combined.
Then, it’s simply a matter of dropping large spoonfuls of the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Let them cool until set. To do this, I stick mine in the fridge for an hour or two.
Pour a glass of milk and enjoy!
