The Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies – Day 2
In case you missed it, Julie, of Booking Mama, and I are hosting a virtual cookie swap. We’ll post twelve cookie recipes (six each, since we’re alternating days) and we hope you’ll share a recipe on November 27. Julie got things started yesterday with her recipe for Nut Squares.
I decided to start off my part of the swap with my easiest tried-and-true recipe. This recipe is simple and can be thrown together at the last minute. These cookies were always popular with Vance’s friends, and everyone around here seems to love them too.
No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
1 stick of butter
2 cups sugar
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
Bring first five ingredients to a boil. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and oatmeal. Mix well and spoon onto wax paper. Remove from wax paper when set. About 20 minutes.
Julie will be posting a recipe for Day 3 tomorrow.
