Truth time – my oldest boy could live on chocolate and peanut butter.  I think there’s a lot of people out there who could say the same thing.  The other day, I had promised him that I’d make him cookies after school as a treat but the day got away from me.  I’m not sure what happened but I had less then an hour and the boys were going to be in the door.

Now, I typically wouldn’t stress about this and I’d just tell him that I’d make them tomorrow but sadly I had been saying this for a few days.  So, I decided to make a quick No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies for them.  These are one of their favorites because they are so delicious and I love them because they take minutes to make!  Check out the recipe below!

You could had a 1/2 cup of peanuts too if you want a little more crunch and texture in your no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies.  My boys like them without the nuts but I prefer them with but both ways are delicious!

    I’m not sure hat I did wrong I followed this recipe to a t and they didn’t get hard they have good flavor but they are soft I made them 15hrs ago

    This has been my go to recipe for years! Some people use crisco in place of butter, but I usually use the butter like you. My kids love this recipe! One child prefers I omit the cocoa and just end up with peanut butter no bakes. The other prefers the chocolate. I have even substituted coconut for the oats. Awesome post:)

    These look incredible, Chrissy! Our babysitter gave my boys some similar no-bake cookies a few months ago and the kids devoured them. I’ve been trying to find a recipe to recreate them ever since, and I think this IS IT! So excited! They are definitely dangerous to have sitting around the kitchen, though. 🙂
