Cow Pies
Serves: 24
I love to use chunky peanut butter, and sometimes add chopped peanuts with the oats. The recipe makes about 24, but trust me - you'll probably want to double it!
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups quick oats
  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk. Bring to a rolling boil and then let the mixture boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt and the peanut butter. Stir until well blended.
  3. Stir in vanilla and oats.
  4. Drop by large teaspoons (or use a scoop!) onto waxed paper to cool.
