- 1 stick butter
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup cocoa
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups quick cook oats
- ¼ tsp salt
In a large bowl stir together oats and salt. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, over medium high heat, whisk together butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa.
Bring the mixture to a boil for about a minute and then remove from heat.
Whisk in peanut butter and vanilla until well combined.
Pour chocolate peanut butter mixture over oats and stir until combined.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Drop cookies onto the wax paper using a medium cookie scoop.
Let the cookies cool on the counter top. Store in the refrigerator once cookies are cool and dry.
**If you don’t let them cool on the counter before putting them in the refrigerator they will become very gooey.**
