  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 2 ½-3 cup quick cooking oats [i.e. Quaker]


  • Melt together the butter, milk, cocoa, granulated sugar and salt. Cook over medium-high stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil.
  • Lower to medium and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the peanut butter and vanilla, stir constantly until the peanut butter begins to melt.
  • Add 2 cup oats, stir until coated and add additional ½ cup at a time. Work quickly.
  • Drop using a Tbsp on wax paper. Cool completely.


When making this recipe, there can be variables. Humidity, ingredient quality etc. I recommend adding oats until they're fully coated with chocolate as pictured. This may take less than 3 cups total..
