My friend at work has recently been talking about how much she loves these cookies. Honestly, I think the last time I had these was when I very first started working at the credit union and my dear friend Natalie introduced them to me. Her family calls them “gorilla poops”. The name stuck, but the cookie didn’t so much. Until recently I decided to try them out again. I got the recipe from Amanda, made them, and devoured them! Ohmygoodness, talk about mmm… mmm… good! So simple, quick, and chocolatey wonderful!
No Bake Cookies
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/2 c. peanut butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 c. rolled oats
Mix together in a saucepan the sugar and cocoa. Add the milk and cook on low until sugar dissolves.
Add the butter and melt into chocolate mixture.
Stir in the peanut butter and remove from heat. Stir together until ingredients are melted and combined together. Add in the vanilla.
Pour mixture over top the rolled oats. Stir until evenly coated. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Let set, and enjoy!
