No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cookies



Oh my sweet mama, these are amazing...
 
·  2 cups sugar
·  1 stick butter
·  3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
·  1/2 cup milk
·  1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
·  1 ½  tsp. vanilla extract
·  3 cups oatmeal (old fashioned rolled oats, not instant)

Mix the sugar, butter, cocoa, and milk in a medium saucepan. Boil for 1 minute. Stir

Reduce heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Mix quickly until peanut butter melts, then add the oatmeal. Mix until the ingredients are well blended. Stir for a couple more minutes on low heat (you want the oats to slightly cook, so they won't be hard when you eat them).

Drop spoonfuls onto tin foil, wax or parchment paper. Allow to set and cool completely before serving. I would suggest putting them in the fridge if you want them to set faster.
Makes 2 dozen 3 inch cookies.


This is revised version of a Lick the Bowl Good recipe.
