In this post, I share a super simple No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Recipe you are going to love. I am bookmarking this for my Christmas Cookie Party activities because this is a fun recipe to make with little kiddos because the hot oven is NOT involved. You will find a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post and be sure to check out other cookie recipes on my site.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Oh yes, It is no-bake but a little stovetop action is required to melt down the butter. Scroll to the Directions to see Microwave instructions if you don’t want to fire up the stove. Both ways work perfectly for this easy to create recipe you can do with kids.
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder ( Hersey Special Dark)
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. If you using a microwave: Mix together sugar, margarine, milk, cocoa, and vanilla. Heat in microwave 2 minutes. Stir. Heat in microwave 2 more minutes.
Remove from heat or after microwaving, stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.
It really is that simple. In the photo below you will see how dark the cookie will be using Hersey Special Dark Chocolate.
Here is the printable recipe card you can create and add to your recipe book notes.
