No Bake Cookies?  Yes Please!  This chewy morsels might just be your new favorite.  And so easy...


2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (use salted if you have it)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used chunky for more bite and texture)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups oats
pinch of salt


In a medium saucepan, bring the cocoa, sugar, milk and butter to a boil over medium heat. It's important to bring these to a boil verrrrry slowly. Once they reach a rolling boil, boil for 60 seconds. Use a timer!

Pull the saucepan off the heat after boiling. Add in the oats, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well.

Allow the mixture to cool for 1 minute and then drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper.
