Chocolate Peanut Butter NO BAKE Cookies

Chocolate?  Peanut Butter?    who doesn't crave this delicious combination every now and then?  These cookies are easy .  What is even better is that you don't even need to turn the oven on to make them.  They are made right on the stove top! 

Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies


Servings - 24   Serving Size - 1 cookie   Points Plus per serving - 3 points+
Calories - 103,   Total Fat - 5.2g,   Carb. - 13.4g,   Protein - 2.3g,   Fiber - 1.1g


1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 c granulated sugar
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 c 1% milk
1/2 c peanut butter
1  1/2 cups oats ( either quick cooking or old fashioned)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder and milk. Stir well and bring to rolling boil.  ( a rolling boil is one that continues to boil even if the mixture is stirred).  Allow to boil for one minute.  Take off heat and stir in peanut butter until melted.  Add oats and vanilla.  Drop by tablespoons on waxed paper.         ( I use a small cookie scoop)  Allow to cool.  Cookies will harden as they cool.  Makes approximately 24 cookies.
