After you have melted the butter in the saucepan, you add the cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Once that is all melted, you add the vanilla and peanut butter. You then pour the hot mixture in a bowl with the oats and mix.

There’s no exact measurement on how big or small you want these cookies. I used my 2 TBSP measuring spoon to scoop up the mixture. You can use any spoon you like. I put it straight on my silicone baking sheets and let it set up.

I realized afterwards I could of made it look “neater” if I smoothed the edges to make it more of a circular cookie shape. Either way, they tasted delicious!
