Cuisine – No-bake peanut butter chocolate cookies

These no-bake cookies are super easy to make. They are always popular and so ideal for any bake sale or Gala cake stall.

Yields: 25 cookies
½ cup salted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup soft brown sugar
½ cup milk
5 Tbsp cocoa powder
Pinch table salt
½ cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp vanilla
3½ cups rolled oats

Method: Line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter, sugars, milk, cocoa, and salt over medium heat. Boil for about 1½ minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Remove from the heat, add in the vanilla and peanut butter. Keep stirring until the peanut butter is completely melted. Then add the oats, making sure it’s mixed well. Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and drop it onto the lined baking trays.  Allow to rest at room temperature until set, (matt brown in colour) – about 30 minutes  Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
