Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: About 12 cookies
  • 1 cube butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cups milk
  • 6 Tbsp cocoa
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, your choice)
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • Peeps Marshmallow Chicks (I used yellow, but blue ones would be really pretty too!)
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, sugar, milk, cocoa, and salt together. Bring to a roiling boil and boil for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and mix until peanut butter is thoroughly combined.
  3. Stir in quick oats a cup at a time. Mix until evenly coated by the chocolate mixture.
  4. Drop approximately 2 inch balls onto wax paper. Let cool to the touch and then use your fingers to poke down the middle and shape the cookies into a nest shape. You don't want perfect, nests are messy! The less you can touch the cookies the better. Place Cadbury Mini Eggs in the nests and top with a Peep Chick
  5. Let the cookies cool and set completely, usually between 1 and 2 hours. Serve.
  6. No Bake Chocolate Nest Easter Cookies
