My older sister has always been a wiz at finding and creating yummy meals.
I remember spending hours pouring over cookbooks together
and the end result always pleasing the table.

These cookies are no exception.
They instantly became a family favorite upon her first attempt.
What isn't there to love about chocolate and peanut butter?

Since I'm all about quick and easy recipes now-a-days,
and the upcoming holidays make me sentimental for family traditions,
I knew I had to share these cookies with you.
Not going to lie, I enjoyed having an excuse to whip up a batch myself.
I haven't enjoyed exercising my will power to not eat them for breakfast.

My Family Favorite No Bake Cookies

1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (Hershey's is the best)
1/2 cup crunchy or smooth peanut butter (I prefer crunchy, but only had smooth on hand)
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

First combine the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa in a medium-large saucepan. 

On medium-low heat bring the mixture to a boil and cook 1.5 minutes. This is the trickiest part of the recipe. Make sure you begin timing as soon as the mixture reaches a full rolling bowl. Boiling too much will make the cookies dry and fall apart. Boiling too little will make the cookies runny and unable to form.

Then remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter, oats and vanilla.

Drop by teaspoonful on wax paper and let cool.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

  1. Love this cookie swap!! These no bakes are perfect, my husband's favorite!

  2. These are a family favorite for us too! Love #tuesdaytalk

  3. My husband's favorite cookie! I can't eat them due to a peanut allergy, so it is special when I put on the gloves and make up these babies. I liked your graphic you used today. Where did you get it? I noticed others had it to. I must have missed something.
