No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies bring back lots of childhood memories. My mom made these for us a lot when we were kids because they were quick and easy to make.
Reader Jennifer Z. submitted this photo and recipe of the No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies that she enjoys cooking with her grandkids. It’s a favorite treat and activity they do together when they visit.

Combine sugar, milk, butter and cocoa powder in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
