Today’s recipe is one that many people probably already have in their recipe boxes. It’s a wonderful fudge-like cookie, rich with chocolate and peanut butter, loaded with oatmeal, a favorite for generations – The Classic No Bake Cookie. AKA, the BEST cookie ever.
NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES – A favorite cookie for generations that’s so simple to make. These addictive cookies are loaded with peanut butter, chocolate and oats (old-fashioned oats or quick oats) – ready in about 30 minutes. No reason to heat up the kitchen with this no-bake, no-fuss, old school classic.
I am adding this to my Sweet Little Bluebird recipe box for my girls, so they have access to it no matter where they are, when they’re away from home.
In a medium to large size sauce pan, heat butter, milk, sugar and cocoa over medium heat, blending well and stirring continuously. Bring to a rapid boil. Once boiling, allow to boil (while continuing to stir) for 1 1/2 minutes then remove from heat. Next add vanilla and peanut butter and blend well, then add oats, blend well. Drop large spoonfuls of batter on wax paper. Allow to cool/set for 25 to 30 minutes on counter. Enjoy with a ol’ big glass of cold milk!
