Mud Cookies or Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup peanut butter (can use either smooth or crunchy)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups quick cooking oats
Line two large sheet pans with wax paper; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add milk, sugar, and cocoa; stir until combined. Bring to a boil, then cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and immediately stir in peanut butter, vanilla extract, and oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared pans. Allow cookies to cool before removing from pans.
These cookies are flavored with cocoa powder and peanut butter, and they even have oats thrown into the mix for some extra goodness.
Drop the cookies by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and allow to cool.
With all the nostalgia going on, I think Desert Rose would be the appropriate serving piece for these Mud Cookies.
