Dark Chocolate No Bake Cookies

This is a cookie that my husband asks that I never make again.  Why?  Well, because he loves them, and would eat the entire plate.  They are entirely too addicting.  2014-05-04 04.05.52

The Ingredients for this are simple.  You probably have most of them in your kitchen.

Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 TBS Dark Chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 cups quick rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

2014-05-04 02.08.58Combine the sugar, butter, milk, cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan over low heat.  Bring mixture to a rolling boil, stirring the entire time.  (This will take a while, but it’s worth it!)  Boil for about a minute and a half.2014-05-04 02.22.30Remove from heat.  Add the peanut butter and vanilla, stir until it’s combined.  Then add your oats.2014-05-04 02.23.19If only you could smell this.  Oh man.2014-05-04 02.24.08Spread out a piece of waxed paper.  Scoop generous portions onto the paper.  2014-05-04 02.24.21I like to use a small cookie scoop, it’s a little neater this way, and you get a pretty uniform batch of cookies.2014-05-04 02.27.23  Now this is the hard part.  You have to (or at least should) wait for them to cool and set.  It’s no fun being patient, but you can clean up while your waiting.  (AKA, scrape the pan and lick the spoon.)2014-05-04 19.12.51They’re good any time of the day.  Even for breakfast with your coffee.  What?  They have milk and oats in them!
