My husband grew up on this recipe for No Bake Cookies. It is also a staple at our house for my children. They are quick and easy to make and are great for a quick treat or after school snack. I feel like my kids are getting something somewhat healthy because of the peanut butter and oats. The taste of the chocolate with the peanut butter in these cookies makes them a favorite.
No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup butter
3 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
Put all of these ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add the following:
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, we do creamy)
3 cups quick oats
1 tsp vanilla
Mix until combined and drop spoonfuls onto wax paper. Allow time to cool. Enjoy!
