My husband's dad's mom made these for my husband's family pretty regularly when he was growing up. She gave us the recipe right before we got married. They're classic. It quickly become one of our standard cookie recipes. I make these at least 3-4 times per year. They are very easy and very tasty. Enjoy!

Total cooking time: 15-20 minutes

No Bake Cookies: Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Ingredients:
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal

Cover two cookie sheets with wax paper.

Combine the sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute.

Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and oatmeal. Stir until just combined. Using a spoon, drop the mixture in tablespoon sized portions onto the wax paper covered cookie sheets. You should have just enough room to fit all of the cookies onto the two sheets.

Put the cookies into the refrigerator to cool. We store the cookies right on the sheets in the refrigerator, but you don't have to refrigerate them once they've cooled.

      I love cookies like this! My grandmother used to make them when I was a kid and I had her copy her recipe down for me when I visited a little while ago. Pinning!

      My Mom used to make these a lot, and up until a few years ago I did, too. They are so delicious! I'm sharing this.

      Very nice! I'm sure that this would work without the butter, or with a smaller amount of it, but obviously it does add great extra flavor. I have heard these cookies called a variety of different names, including that one haha. Thanks!

      My mom used to make these a lot when I was growing up. I've made them a few times, but I don't think we put butter in them. That sounds like an added yumminess. Will have to try that next time. We actually call them doo-doo cookies, now, though, picking that up from a friend in college. LOL. Great hub!
