Cuisine American


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 squares unsweetened bakers chocolate
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats


  • Melt the butter in the top of a double boiler. Stir in the sugar and add the chocolate.
  • Once the chocolate begins to melt slowly stir in the milk.
  • Cook for 4 - 5 minutes or until everything is melted together.
  • Turn off the heat and remove the top pan from the double boiler. Stir in the peanut butter, keep stirring until it's a creamy mixture.
  • Add the vanilla extract and the oats. Stir until the chocolate mixture is coating the oats.
  • Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto sheets of wax paper. You'll get about 2 dozen tablespoon sized cookies or a little less with bigger drops.
  • Let the cookies cool and set for 5 - 10 minutes if possible.
