These are so easy and so good. They take about 10-15 minutes of your time and are so worth it.

I decided to play with my traditional recipe today and add some coconut. I decided it was a great addition so I made it an optional ingredient on the recipe.


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • - Optional, 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • - Optional, 1/3 cup flaked coconut


  • Line 2 large baking sheets with reynolds parchment paper, or alum. foil and set aside.
  • Combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa in large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and cool 1 minute.
  • Add peanut butter and stir until melted. Add oats, vanilla, peanuts and coconut (if desired) and mix well.
  • Quickly drop mixture by heaping tablespoons onto lined cookie sheets.
  • Place in refrigerator until set. Once set remove cookies from sheet and place in air tight container in a cool, dry place
