#12 No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter, And Oatmeal Cookies
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar, cream, and cocoa, then boil for 1 minute.
Remove the saucepan from heat, add the peanut butter and vanilla, and stir until smooth. Stir in the oats and peanuts.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the batter onto wax paper-lined baking sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart, and let cool until set, about 20 minutes.
Storage suggestion: Keep the cookies at room temperature, between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container, for up to 3 days.
