In My Kitchen with Amy Christie

May 22, 2013 — 6 Comments


“We love desserts in our house, all kinds. My husband and children have enjoyed many a treat, all for the sake of the blog. Tough stuff, huh? 🙂 But sometimes we don’t have the time (or patience) to wait through long bake times. That’s when we turn to this recipe for No-Bake Cookies. A combination of chocolate and peanut butter, which is always good, and is ready to eat in a flash. Our favorite is eating them while they are still warm and soft. So delicious!”

Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies
from Amy Christie of this heart of mine
1 stick of butter 
2 cups sugar 
1/2 cup milk 
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
3/4 cup peanut butter
3 cups rolled oats

In a pot over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add sugar, milk, and cocoa powder. Boil together for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, stirring until well combined. Lastly, add oats. Spoon out onto wax paper to harden.
