I have had the munchies all day long and tonight was craving something sweet. My husband makes the best chocolate oatmeal cookies, and I twisted his arm into making me some. Yay! If you have never experienced these cookies before, let me tell you they are the absolute best ever!
Here’s what you will need:
Over medium heat combine 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup milk, 2 cups of sugar, and 3 Tbsp of cocoa powder. Bring this up to a simmer. Once it starts simmering time it for 60 seconds then remove from heat. The 60 seconds part is crucial find a stop watch…no joke.
While everything is heating up, measure out 1/2 a cup of peanut butter, 1 tsp of vanilla, and 3 cups of quick oats. This will get thrown in after everything else has simmered for 60 seconds. And if you were wondering, JIF is the best peanut butter out there.
Now, throw the peanut butter, vanilla, and oats into the pot and mix everything together.
The hubs and his trusty side kick Jack:)
Scoop them out on wax paper and let them cool. You have to scoop out some at this point to “test” for everyone’s safety. This is my favorite time to eat them:)
