Who doesn’t love these peanut butter and chocolate mounds of goodness? They’re easy to make—just be sure to boil them long enough so they set up firmly.
1 stick butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups quick-cook oats
In a medium saucepan, bring butter, sugar, milk and cocoa to a boil, stirring constantly. Keep mixture at a full boil for 90 seconds. Remove from heat, and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Slowly add the oats, stirring to combine.
Drop large dollops (about 2-3 tablespoons) onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Give cookies a festive twist by topping with holiday sprinkles before cookies cool completely. Once cooled, arrange in holiday muffin liners for a cheerful display.
