Chocolate & Peanut Butter No Bakes


Reviews for: No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter CookiesYUM. I did add coconut (1 cup) and used butter instead of margarine. They set up better with butter. (let’s face it, everything’s better with butter) These are always a hit


  • 1/2 c butter
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa
  • 2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Heaping spoonful peanut butter
  • 3 c regular oats


Measure out the oats in a separate bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan, pour in the cocoa and combine. Pour in the sugar and milk. Let boil for 2-3 min then take off the heat and add vanilla and peanut butter. Pour over the oats and mix together. Spoon cookies out onto foil and let set. Makes 15-17 medium size cookies.

Be sure to use Quick Oats. I tried using rolled oats, but didn’t like the results. They were crumbly and dry.
I use creamy Jiff Peanut Butter for the best results.
Work quickly once you add the oatmeal to the chocolate mixture. The cookies will thicken once the mixture starts to cool.
