No-Bake Cookies

When you have a craving for both peanut butter and chocolate but do not want to turn the oven on try some No-Bake Cookies.  

I usually make dark chocolate no bakes but I tried an all peanut butter version and actually liked them a lot.  Next time I would double the peanut butter because I only used the same amount of peanut butter as the chocolate.  

 No-Bake Cookies 

1 cup white sugar
1/4  Hershey's Dark Chocolate cocoa
1/2 peanut butter
1/2 milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
1 stick butter

  1. Place wax paper on newspaper or cookies sheet prior to starting cookies so it is ready as they set up fast and you won't have time to do it afterward.
  2.  Put sugar, milk and cocoa in medium sauce pan on medium heat.  Stir mixture constantly until it reaches a full boil.  It has to fully boil for at least a minute or the cookies will not set up properly. 
  3. Remove mixture from heat.  Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, butter till thoroughly mixed.
  4. Mix in oats quickly and spoon onto wax paper.  
To make the Peanut Butter version omit the cocoa.  I used old fashioned oats so I actually had to use a little bit less of the rolled oats.
