Peanut Butter & Chocolate No-Bakes {or you can call them what WE call them...}

Ohhhhhh...poop {cookies}.
There. I said it. And I'll say it again. Poop Cookies. I've debated for quite some time {all morning actually} whether or not I'd tell you what we really call these cookies around here. I take no credit for the name. The bestie {Lori} introduced me to these my freshmen year in college. And not to drag this even further into the bathroom talk...but it's probably obvious why we call these...well, poop cookies. Lori's also my dump cake buddy. Yeah, she's trouble, I tell ya. Dump cake. Poop cookies. Ironically, she's the classiest person I know. I'm not even a little kidding. You'd have to be classy to be able to throw around words like "poop" and "dump" and have them taste this amazing. 

These are seriously crazy-easy.

You'll need:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 TBS. cocoa powder
  • 3 TBS. real butter {I use salted. Because I'm southern and that's what we do.}
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups uncooked quick oatmeal

Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk and bring to a boil.
Stir constantly while boiling for one minute.

Remove from heat and add peanut butter, salt and vanilla.

Add oats and mix completely.

Once everything is incorporated, they'll start to firm up a bit.
Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto wax paper.

Pop into the fridge for an hour to finish firming.
Soooo good.

  2. Too funny! I have a recipe for these amazing chocolate butter cookies we made when I was a kid, we still call them "dog poop balls" as we so eloquently named them back in the day. :) My kids get as much of a kick out of it as we did.

  3. I love them! My husband makes them, but we just call them dad's peanut butter candy. He leaves out the chocolate though. I like your name better...poop cookies. :)

  4. A favorite of my kids when they were growing up, and now they make them for my grandkids. Still a favorite, and the easiest cookie to make. I've never firmed mine up in the fridge, just let them sit on the counter. Good to know if I'm ever short on time.

  5. This is just about our favorite sweet treat around here. I love that you call them poop cookies, LOL! We just call them "no-bakes" - whatever you call 'em, they are so good!

  10. Fabulous! Have not heard that name for them, but whatever turns your crank. (or flushes your toilet - ha) Everyone needs a great no bake choc cookie and these look just mouth-watering!

  11. Love the name! My family has always called them no-bake chocolate cookies. However, in the same vein, have you heard about kitty litter cake? There are lots of recipes posted around on the internet, but basically you make two box cake mixes, one white and one chocolate. After they cool, break them into tiny crumbs and mix together. (There might be some other ingredients too -- can't remember without looking it up.) Then you spread everything in a (new, clean!) litter box. Drape a few partly-softened Tootsie Rolls over the edge and bury some part-way in the crumbs, then accessorize with a new pooper-scooper! It's a great hit at parties!

  17. Every January I make those cookies for my brother's birthday. I use 3 cups oatmeal for my recipe and 1/2 cup peanut butter. I found that for fool proof cooking, cook the mixture to 'soft ball' stage using a candy thermometer.. they come out perfect that way!

  18. When we make these we call them "COW PATTIES." If you have ever been around cows you'll understand how we came up with the name.
