Mom’s No Bake Cookies

Just the smell of the chocolate and peanut butter being cooked together brought us running. And the fact that we didn’t have to wait for them to bake was a real plus

It’s been years since I’ve made these, but I found my mothers recipe and just had to make some. I wanted a little less sugar so I used 1/2 regular sugar and 1/2 sweetener. You can’t tell that it’s not all sugar. They are sweet and simply delicious 👍

Old Fashioned No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

2 cups sugar (1 used 1/2 sugar & 1/2 sweetener)

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup baking cocoa

1/4 tsp vanilla flavoring

1/2 creamy or crunchy Peanut Butter

3 cups old fashioned Oats (Quick Oats work fine too)

1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan

2. Add sugar/sweetener and stir well

3. Add cocoa, milk & vanilla. Stir well and continue stirring until it comes to a full boil for 1 minute.

4. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter

5. Stir in oats

6. Spoon or scoop onto wax paper or parchment paper lined pan.

7. Place in refrigerator to chill & set.

8. Makes 24-27 cookies
