Cooking Thursday - No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies with Coconut


Join us for Cooking Thursday at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

No Bake Cookies are one of my favorite cookies.  They are easy to make, and they really quench my craving for chocolate.  On a whim one night I threw some coconut into the mix and the result was so wonderful that it has become a permanent part of my recipe. 

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons Dutch cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut



1.  In a heavy saucepan add the sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk.

2.  Bring mixture to a rolling boil. 

3.  Let boil for 1 minute.



4.  Add the mixture in the saucepan to the peanut butter, vanilla, oatmeal, and coconut.


5.  Mix all ingredients completely.



6.  Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of cookie mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper.

Of course I ran out of waxed paper on the day I made these and had to use aluminum foil instead.  I had the same results as when I use waxed paper.

7.  Allow cookies to cool.  Once they have hardened they are ready to eat.

  1. No bake cookies are one of our favorites too. The funny thing is that my recipe already had coconut in it, and I took it out because we don't like it!
