Next time you need a fast cookie fix, let these crunchy, creamy, cocoa bites come to the rescue. Requiring only 10 minutes of hands-on time, a few kitchen staples—and even fewer kitchen skills—they're delicious washed down with an after-school glass of milk or an after-dinner cup of tea.


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

Chef's Notes

Storage suggestion: Keep the cookies at room temperature, between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container, for up to 3 days.
