Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies Recipe

When it comes to baking cookies in the summer months, I have two favorite kinds.

The no-bake kind, where you whip up the dough, place scoops on a cookie sheet, and place in the fridge to harden up. Like this Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies Recipe, ready to enjoy in only 30 minutes and no heating up the oven.

Then there were my mom’s “refrigerator oatmeal cookies,” the kind where the dough was shaped into a nice long log, wrapped in wax paper, and stored in the refrigerator.

Are you a cookie dough lover like I am? Since I was a young teen, my girlfriends (Lisa, Karen, Rhonda, Kristin) and I would make the dough, fill a coffee mug half-way with dough, and nuke it for 30 seconds. It was our own little method of taking the flavor up a notch … we called it “mushing” the dough. :)

Busted! Another easy way to enjoy of a slice of sweet, tantalizing goodness!

A few weeks ago on a very hot summer night, our family wanted cookies, but I didn’t want to heat up the oven. I pulled out mom’s recipe and whipped up a batch of no-bake cookies. Mom had so many cookie recipes. This Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies Recipe is not new, it’s been around for years, but it’s still a summer favorite!

Add a chunk of chocolate to the center, refrigerate and ENJOY!

Oh, and did you know these cookies freeze well, too?
