INGREDIENTS

½ cup unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
½ cup milk
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
½ cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups oats (both quick-cooking and old-fashioned oats will work)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add butter, sugar, milk, cocoa powder, and salt to a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a rapid boil and let boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth, then stir in the oats.
  4. Using a medium cookie scoop (or 2 tablespoonfuls), drop onto prepared baking sheets.
  5. Let cool until set, about 30 minutes. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator) for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
