Peanut Clusters (No-Bake Cookies)

Top of Stove Cookies


Such a Unique and Delicious Flavor

Guests will be hard-pressed trying to figure out just what goes into these tasty cookies. They have a unique flavor and are soft and so good.

Best of all, you don't have to bake them in the oven. You can whip up these cookies in about 5-10 minutes. All you need is a large pot and a few simple ingredients.

Cookies are prepared top-of-stove, then placed on greased pan in the fridge to set up. Once solid, they can be stored in a tin.


Stock up on can milk and roasted, unsalted peanuts and you can make these cookies at a moment's notice.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 butter
  • 2/3 cup can milk
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts, (unsalted)


Peanuts must be roasted, not raw; and they must be unsalted. Substitutions won't do.

Boil First 3 Ingredients

  1. Combine: sugar, butter, and can milk in a pot.
  2. Boil 3-4 minutes on low-to-medium heat, stirring frequently, so that mixture doesn't stick to bottom of pot and burn.

Use a flat surface when placing these cookies to set. A large cookie sheet works well.
