No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

By Amy M. O’Quinn


Have you tried this old classic recently? If not, you should! Because when you combine chocolate, oatmeal, and peanut butter all into one yummy confection—you have a winner! Plus, it’s an extremely easy recipe with ingredients that you probably already have in the pantry. And because the goodies don’t have to be baked, you’ll have a delicious treat in no time at all. Give it a try!




Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except peanut butter and oats. Cook over medium heat. Let boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and oats. Spoon out quickly onto wax paper or aluminum foil. Cookies will harden as they set.
