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.
1 cup white sugar
1/4 Hershey's Dark Chocolate cocoa
1/2 peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
1 stick butter
- 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.
- 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.
- Remove mixture from heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, butter till thoroughly mixed.
- Mix in oats quickly and spoon onto wax paper.
