My Grandma's No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies always make me think of my maternal Grandmother. Until she stopped cooking a few years ago, almost every time we went to her house she had these rich, yummy cookies for her grandkids. They are so easy to make, they were one of the first things I learned to cook.

1 stick butter
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. milk
2 c. sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick cooking oats

Boil butter, cocoa, milk, sugar for 1 minute. Add peanut butter and stir until mixed well. Add vanilla and stir. Add oats and mix well, stirring until mixture begins to thicken slightly. Spoon out onto wax paper. Once they are cool, they will become solid and you can store them in a closed container on the counter. Or you could just eat them all :o)

Wanted to say thanks for stopping by and reading my selective squeamishness post the other day. I love learning from other bloggers and am glad to have something to contribute to the conversation!

I am so sorry about your friends home. What a scary thing to live through! Your points are a good lesson to us all.

Have a good day,

These are my favorite cookies. In fact I made them yesterday. I think all of the oatmeal makes them a breakfast food as well. :)
