These are great in any form, from warm to room temperature, and even chilled in the fridge. I've found that kids and adults alike adore them.
This recipe makes a LOT. Dropped by heaping tablespoons, I usually get about 28-30. Make them a bit smaller and you'll get 3 dozen easy. I usually half the recipe and get 14 pretty big cookies.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Patty Cakes
Yield: 2-3 dozen cookies
Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- ½ cup milk
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- ½ cup peanut butter (not natural)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups quick-cooking oats
Add the first four ingredients (through the cocoa powder) to a saucepan. Mix until butter is melted and ingredients are well combined. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Then stir in the oats.
Drop by heaping tablespoons onto wax paper and gently shape into hamburger patty-like shapes. Let cool a few minutes until set. EAT!
