Fudgey Peanut Butter Cocoa No Bakes are hands down one of my FAVORITE treats ever!! The big added bonus is in the summer you don’t have to turn on the oven to make them and then in the winter the perfect warm goeey mess to eat. (I have included affiliate links to products I love.

Not only are they a great dessert but I also made these often while nursing because the oatmeal gives a boost for nursing and the peanut butter helped to boost my calories. Plus let’s face it after having a baby or a rough day chocolate and peanut butter together is amazing!!!
Now I adapted the recipe from a cookbook I received -> The Great American Cookie Cookbook as a Christmas gift right before graduating from High School. 15 years later I still use this cookie cookbook, and my girls are loving it! I highly recommend giving cookbooks, as great as Pinterest is there is something about being able to flip through pages and whip it up. Plus with Amazon Prime you don’t even have to go to the post office, just order one from Amazon and bam UPS man is delivering the cookbook using Amazon Prime 2 day delivery! (Don’t have Prime?? You NEED for easy online shopping!!)
No Bakes Fudgey Peanut Butter Cocoa Ingredients:
- 2 Cups of Sugar
- 1/2 Cup (1 Stick) of butter or margarine
- 1/2 Cup of Milk
- 1/3 cup of Cocoa
- 1 Cup of Peanut Butter (I love using crunchy)
- 3 Cups of Oats ( I have used quick cooking or old fashion)
- 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
- *Option nuts
No Bakes Fudgey Peanut Butter Cocoa Directions:
Combine together milk, sugar, butter, and cocoa (I add cocoa after the butter has melted) on the stovetop in a saucepan.
Bring to a rolling boil
Remove from heat and add in Vanilla, Oats, and peanut butter and stir well.
Scoop onto wax paper and allow to cool and harden. I use a cookie scoop to make them uniform. This is one of my favorite ways to scoop out the batter, plus it helps me to keep my hands clean too. They also double great for serving other foods as well!!
