Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

These classic no bake cookies can be made in minutes and are the perfect after-school treat, a must for holiday cookie trays, and the best “just because” cookie.

These cookies are perfect for those moments when you are desperately craving something sweet and chocolatey, but don’t have a lot of time (or patience) to make a full-blown batch of cookies. I know that a lot of people grew up eating these no bake cookies as after-school snacks or saw them every year on holiday cookie trays, but believe it or not, I had never heard of them until a few years ago! These mounds of sugary, peanut buttery, chocolate goodness are incredibly addicting. They take only minutes to make and if you’re really desperate and don’t want to wait for them to set, you can eat the mixture straight from the bowl – no raw eggs to worry about!

As soon as I took my first bite, I immediately thought that they tasted like the icing for the Texas Sheet Cake that I love so much.

After thinking about it, the ingredients are very similar – butter, sugar, and cocoa that are boiled together. The peanut butter and oats help to cut the sweetness and add great flavor and texture.

These no bake cookies really are as easy as they sound, and a great recipe to make with kids if you have any little hands eager to help in the kitchen.
