No Bake Cookies are such a nostalgic childhood favorite! This recipe has that classic chocolate peanut butter flavor combo and the perfect chewy, fudgy texture. And I’m pretty sure they’re the easiest cookies on the planet to make
I’ve been making no bake oatmeal cookies for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the first things I learned how to make as a kid, I’d make them for my family on the weekends because my mom didn’t care much for dessert (be sure to supervise kids when making these though!).
They always filled the craving for something sweet and they were ready to eat in no time. Plus everyone in my family loved them, and me the most I’m sure.
This is almost the exact same recipe I had when I was younger but I did add in a little bit more cocoa and peanut butter here, because why not?? It’s a flavor combo I never can resist!
1 ¾ cups white sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
