Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies


1/2 cup unsalted butter

2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky based on preference)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups quick-cooking oats

A pinch of salt


Prepare Baking Sheets: Line baking sheets with parchment paper or wax paper and set aside.

Combine Sugar, Butter, Milk, and Cocoa: In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.

Boil the Mixture: Once the mixture reaches a rolling boil, allow it to boil for 1 minute, then remove the saucepan from heat.

Add Peanut Butter and Vanilla: Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until the peanut butter is melted and the mixture is smooth.

Mix in Oats: Add the quick-cooking oats and a pinch of salt to the saucepan. Stir until the oats are thoroughly coated and the mixture is well combined.

Form the Cookies: Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. You can use a cookie scoop or two spoons to form the cookies.

Cool and Set: Allow the cookies to cool at room temperature until they are set and firm, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Serve: Once the cookies are set, they are ready to be served.

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
