Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bakes

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 22 cookies



  • Measure oats into a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, combine butter, milk, sugar, peanut butter, and cocoa.
  • Stir together over medium heat (no higher) until fully combined. Don't quit stirring.
  • Once it is boiling while you stir (not just small bubbles around the edge, but a rolling boil) set the timer for 4 minutes.
  • Continue stirring constantly making sure to scrap the sides of the pan as needed.
  • When the timer goes off, turn off the heat and add vanilla. This will cause the mixture to bubble up. Stir to incorporate.
  • Add the oats and mix until completely covered. Try to work fast as the start to harden as they cool.
  • Scoop onto wax paper, using a greased cookie scoop if you have one.
  • Let fully cool, about 20 minutes.
