This could easily go in my Retro section, as I remember similar recipes from my childhood. Even my hubby says his mom would let the boys make this kind of dessert because they weren’t allowed to use the oven. (probably a wise decision). So, here it is. Simple. Easy. AND Delish!
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES (NO-BAKE)
2 cups sugar
3 Tbs. Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbs. butter or margarine
Combine above ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add:
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups One Minute oatmeal
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir until oatmeal is blended in. Drop in spoonfuls on wax or parchment paper. Makes about 30 cookies.
THIS WOULD BE A GREAT RECIPE TO DO WITH GRANDKIDS. Ask me how I know…..
