These simple drop cookies give your oven a break: they start on the stovetop – where all the ingredients are mixed – and then finish and set in the fridge. They are also perfect for making with kids: all of the ingredients are pantry staples, clean-up is easy and there are no raw eggs. If your household has allergy concerns, then swap the peanut butter out with your favorite smooth nut or seed butter like almond, cashew or sunflower butter. Refrigerate the cookies in an airtight container and have chilled treats for after school or as special snacks. This recipe also makes a generous amount of cookies (5 dozen!) so keep it in mind the next time you need a giftable sweet.



  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment.
  2. Bring the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, then let boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the oats, peanut butter, vanilla and salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, and let sit at room temperature until cooled and hardened, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
