This is a tried-and-true recipe I grew up with and I usually make around the holidays. It's quick & easy and can be made at any time of year, especially if you’ve got a chocolate craving.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
Large pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups old-fashioned oats
Line baking sheets with wax paper or parchment.
Bring butter, cocoa, milk, and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Let boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat.
Add salt, peanut better and vanilla. Stir until peanut better is melted and sauce is smooth.
Add oats. Mix well into sauce
Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on the prepared baking sheets. Let sit at room temperature until cooled and hardened, about 45 minutes.
