Christmas to me means beutifully decorated trees…snow…red..green..white…golden! The colours that dominate and spell Christmas for me! & a chubby Santa of course!! 🎄🎄🎅🎁🎉🎊❄️⛄️😊🌟
It’s the time to be..happy…joyful…and much more! Since I attended a Catholic School…I was always looking forward to Christmas…and all the fun it brought along with it! We’d sing carols and decorate the entire school premises and the tree! I miss those days…☺️
But since we don’t get to see snow where I live… I have made my peace with it! 😉 but I wanted to set the mood going for Christmas…and wanted to make something sweet…but not necessarily ‘baked’! Hence, I zeroed in on these Peanut Butter & Oats No-Bake Cookies
Its a very straightforward cookie to put together…slightly fudgy & chewy…oats give that lovely texture…and peanut butter makes it so morish😋… but it’s not crunchy as it’s not baked! It can make a great gift for friends & family too😀 🎁 or a Christmas project for your kids!
Yield: 12 medium cookies
Equipment: a saucepan, measuring cups/ spoons, a plate/ tray, a spatula.
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp butter (I used unsalted)
2 tbsp cocoa pwd
1 tsp vanilla extract/ essence
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (I used Saffola)
1 +1/4 cup oats (I used Quaker)
In a saucepan, add milk, sugar, cocoa pwd & butter. Cook these together on medium flame until the sugar melts and ip the mixture comes to a boil. Let it boil for just 1 min. Turn off the flame, cool it for 2 mins. Then add the vanilla extract, peanut butter & oats. Mix everything well. Then take a steel plate/ tray, and take some mixture in your palms and give it any shape of your choice.
Do this for the entire batch of mixture. Let the cookies sit in the refrigerator for 30 mins before serving.😉😄😄 that’s it! Your yummy cookies are ready👍
You can store it in the refrigerator for upto a week. And if it’s cold enough in your part of the world, you can just keep them at room temperature too!
Let the festive spirit set in with these little bites of heaven!
