Not in any way low-calorie, but they are *so* good!

1/2 c. butter or margarine

2 c. sugar

2 TB cocoa

1/2 c. milk

Combine above ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in:

1/2 c. peanut butter

3 c. quick oats

1 tsp. vanilla

Spoon onto waxed paper and let sit until firm.

I don't know if I would call these cookies, but they are no bake and really good.

PEANUT BUTTER BALLS
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS
  1. Melt peanut butter and butter in saucepan, over low heat. In large bowl, mix crispy rice cereal and confectioners' sugar well. Pour melted peanut butter and butter over cereal and sugar and blend together thoroughly.
  2. Form into 1 inch or smaller balls, spread on cookie sheets, chill till firm in refrigerator (over night is okay).
  3. Melt chocolate in double boiler and keep melted while working with balls. A teaspoon is best to use in dipping the balls in chocolate. Dip good and place on cookie sheet. As you dip them place them back on cookie sheet and keep chilled till firm.
