I know there are so many recipes and names for this cookie out there. Some call them chocolate drop cookies, candy cookies, peanut-butter-chocolate-oat cookies, etc, etc. All I know is they are my favorite! They are so easy and yummy!
Another recipe from my mom that’s been a staple in our family for years.
You will need (yields about 20-25 small cookies):
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 stick of butter
- 2T cocoa
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups oats
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan. Stir & bring to a boil for ONE MINUTE. **No less and no more than a minute! If it’s too short they will be runny, and too long they will be dry. Stir the whole time they are boiling.**
Take off heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and oats.
Drop cookies onto wax paper and allow them to cool for 10-20 minutes.Good luck trying to wait that long to try one though. We lick the pan clean every time 🙂
