  • Pour chocolate chips, butter, milk, and sugar in a large saucepan. Heat on medium heat until combined, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
  • Stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Pour mixture into a parchment lined 8x8 square glass dish, or use a spoon to make drop cookies. Let set for 30 minutes until firm. (You can chill in fridge to set it up more quickly.) Enjoy!


  • Make sure to slowly heat the chocolate chip mixture. If they are cooked too quickly, they will burn and harden the chocolate.
  • Too much oatmeal can cause these to not set up as easily, if making them into drop cookies.
  • Chilling them in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes will help them set up faster, and they are tasty when cool.
  • These can also be made into drop cookies. Simply line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop by spoonfuls. Let them set up per directions above.
