  • Combine sugar and cocoa in a large saucepan. Stir in milk, butter and peanut butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is combined, about 5-20 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Stir in the vanilla, oats and nuts, and mix thoroughly. Take a teaspoon and scoop out a spoonful of the mixture; drop the spoonful onto the waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Place in the refrigerator until the cookies are cooled and set. Store the cookies in an airtight container.

I've been making these cookies since I was old enough to help my mom. I have never added nuts but I'm sure that would be a good addition. Also I add the peanut butter AFTER I take the saucepan off of the heat...I find it helps the cookies maintain some firmness. Read More

They tasted delicous what of them I could get in my mouth! I don't know what I did wrong but mine never hardened! I ate one with a spoon but wound up throwing the rest away they were just globs of goop on the wax paper! Read More

These were so good.. they didn't last long enough to keep in the refigerator. The one thing I will do different next time is to omit the walnuts. Or at least chop them down more. Read More

I had the issue with these not setting as well the first time. Here is the trick.....do not add the peanut butter in the saucepan. Mix it with the oats instead. I bring the cocoa milk butter sugar mixture to a boil slowly and once boiling boil for 2 minutes only. The 5-20 wass way too long. Read More

This was an excellent recipe turned out so great. I used peppermint oil as opposed to vanilla to give it a minty flavor. Yum! Read More
