Easy Holiday Treats: No-Bake Cookies

When we’re scrambling to get some goodies together to gift to friends and neighbors, no-bake cookies are our go-to treat! These chocolate-peanut butter cookies taste an awful lot like fudge, and they’re a cinch to make. We love them!

Start by placing two sticks of unsalted butter, 4 cups of granulated sugar, 1 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of Dutch cocoa powder in a medium saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until the butter is melted. Bring the chocolate mixture to a boil, cook it for 1 minute, then remove it from the heat. Add 1 cup of crunchy peanut butter, 3 tsp. of vanilla extract, 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon, 5 cups of rolled oats and 1/2 cup of dark raisins. Stir to combine.

Drop the batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Allow the cookies to cool until they’re firm (about 15 to 20 minutes), then peel them off the paper and store them in an airtight container.

Ta-da! A quick, easy treat that’s sure to make your taste buds sing!
