Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 30 minutes to cool
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 40 minutes approximately
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (do not use the quick oat, they won't turn out right)
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- large pinch of salt
Here’s how to make it:
- Lay a sheet of wax paper on your counter or use it to cover large cookie sheets.
- Bring the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, then let boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the oats, peanut butter, vanilla and salt. Stir quickly!
- Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the wax paper and let them sit about 30 minutes to harden and cool. Make sure to do this in a room temp or cooler room – if it's warmer they don't set up as well.
