Holiday Recipes - Chocolate No Bake Cookies
While there are many versions of similar recipes out there, this recipe has been in my family for as long as I can recall. Over the years I have polished it up, making it my own.
1 stick butter
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa
1/3 cup milk
1 t. vanilla
2 T. peanut butter
3 cups instant oats
Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Working quickly, add peanut butter. Then stir in oats, a cup at a time.
You can either pour into a buttered pan/dish or drop by spoonful onto parchment or waxed paper.
Cool then eat!
Tip - After they cool, store in an airtight container or zippered storage bag.
For peanut butter no-bakes, omit the cocoa and add an extra spoonful or two of peanut butter after adding vanilla.
I give you this recipe in good faith but results are not guaranteed.
