fast, chocolatey and YUMMY!
My mom made these all the time when I was growing up. We called them "cow patties" or "mud cookies" because of their appearance, but really, they're a chocolate oatmeal cookie.

They're fast and so good...great for chocolate cravings and kids (or adults) dying for a sweet-fix!

  • How to bake an oatmeal cookie. Saucepan Chocolate Cookies - Step 1
    Step 1

    In a medium saucepan, bring butter, milk, sugar and coca to a boil. Boil for two minutes, stirring constantly.

    Remove from heat and immediately add oats, vanilla and peanut butter. Stir well.

    Drop by 1/4 cup-fulls on to wax or parchment paper (an ice cream scoop works well). Allow to cool completely. The cookies will get firm and lose their shine as they cool.

    tore in an airtight container. Try not to eat too many...or you'll get a tummy ache!

This recipe did not work for me. They did not firm up. I had to throw the whole thing away Happy

Fudgies! That's what we call them anyway, and my mom has made them for years. My bff's mom made them too, and it always threw me when I ate those ones 'cause her mom added extra chocolate but mine added extra pb.
