Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies!

I posted a picture of my no bake cookies on twitter and several people asked for the recipe so I figured I'd post it here!

These cookies are so easy to make and oh so yummy! They remind me of my childhood and visiting my mom's family in Mississippi. No clue if they are a regional/ southern thing - all that matters is they are yummy!

No Bake Cookies
1 stick of butter
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup peanut butter



In a sauce pan, heat butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and milk until everything is melted. Bring mixture to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.

Turn off heat. Mix in oats and peanut butter. Stir until combined.

Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper (I didn't have any so just spooned it onto a baking sheet) and let cookie set.

Do yourself a favor and don't drop all of the batter into cookies so you can enjoy some warm, gooey goodness straight from the pan!


Enjoy!

I made some of these before Christmas and my son has been begging to make more ever since we ran out! They really are good! Try pressing an M&M into each one before they set- even more chocolaty goodness!

They must be a southern thing because I grew up on these. They ARE so easy to make and very yummy!

I don't know if it's a southern thing or not because we always made these growing up and I live in PA. Yummy yummy no bakes!!
