No-Bake Haystack Cookies

Another not-so-healthy-but-can't-resist recipe from a fellow food blogger and friend, Beth!

1/2 cup butter
1 and 2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
4 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (regular pb works fine, too)
3 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 Tablespoon vanilla

In a medium sized saucepan, mix together the first five ingredients and bring to a boil. Let boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Add in remaining ingredients and then use a teaspoon to drop the mixture onto cookie sheets lined with waxed paper. Chill until set. Keep in refrigerator.

  1. I'm glad you liked it! I know, 1/2 cup of butter is killer, but I wasn't really concerned when I decided I NEEDED to make them at that point. Hope all is well!
