No Bake Chocolate Cookies

So, this isn't the prettiest picture and with it almost my bedtime (9pm...haha) this is all I'm going to upload. I needed a quick, finger type dessert option for Thanksgiving, and No Bake Chocolate Cookies came to mind. These are so easy and require no electric mixer or oven. Perfect for making while the little one is sleeping.

No Bake Chocolate Cookies:

In a sauce pan melt 1 stick of butter, two cups of sugar, 1/2 cup milk, and 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and add 3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Stir to combine and drop onto waxed paper covered cookie sheets. Let rest until set. Enjoy!
They are perfect with a nice gallon of milk!

How cute is that kid!! He reminds me of my youngest son when he was small. Now he is bigger than me with size 13 feet!
No bake cookies sound like the perfect lazy afternoon confection to make with your kids.

I love anything that is no-bake. Even no-bake cake! I will definitely have to try these with the kids during the holidays.

My mom used to make these all the time when I was growing up. I love them! Hopefully I'll get a chance to make them soon!
