KIMM'S NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE RECIPE

Tip: Have everything measured out and prepped. This recipe goes by quickly!

DIRECTIONS:

-Melt 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

-Add: 3/4 cup white sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, and 1/4 cup water. Stir with a heat safe spatula until just combined.

-Add: 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1 1/2 cup oats. Stir until uniform.

-Now, drop tablespoons onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. "Mold" into a round, cookie shape with your hands.

-Let cool, this will take 15-30 minutes at room temp.

-Now, devour with a friend. Or by yourself. Whatever you choose.

 

This recipe is also easy to modify. Once you add a new ingredient, it becomes new and YOURS. I like subsituting agave nectar for white sugar, adding chopped nuts for a salty kick, and adding some toasted coconut for an extra sweet touch.

Happy Baking,

Kimm
