Yield: 2 dozen cookies


This is my childhood packed into one glorious chewy, choc-tastic, peanut buttery cookie! 


No bakes baby! Apparently this is definitely a Midwest thing.  None of my Southern peoples heard of it. 


What's amazing about it is that it's so easy to make.  Got a dinner party to go to and need to bring a dish???


In 20 minutes you got 2 dozen no bakes ready for everyone to shove into their face-holes. 


Yes, I said face-hole.  


Here's what you need.......




  • 2 Tbsp. - Cocoa Powder

  • ½ c. - Butter

  • 2 c. - Sugar

  • ½ c. - Milk 

  • 1 - Pinch of Kosher Salt

  • ½ c. - Peanut Butter (creamy or chunky)

  • 1 tsp. - Vanilla

  • 3 c. - Oatmeal (quick cooking)

  • ½ c. - Nuts of Choice (small chopped) optional

  • 1 c. - Shredded Coconut (toasted or untoasted) optional



Lay out a few pieces of aluminum foil (shiny side up) before you begin.  This stuff sets quick.


Place butter, sugar, milk, cocoa powder and salt in a pot, melt to combine then bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Once the mixture reaches 230 degrees, add peanut butter and vanilla until and bring back to a boil.


Remove from heat then add the oatmeal, nuts, and/or coconut until combined.  You must work quickly at this point. Take off of the heat and scoop spoonfuls of desired size (I prefer #30 portion scoop) onto aluminum foil sheets. 



Let the cookies set up and firm. Serve with a gi-huge-ic glass of milk.  :)  Enjoy!
