Cereals Cookies

These cookies are perfect for those moments when you are desperately craving something sweet and chocolatey, but don’t have a lot of time (or patience) to make a full-blown batch of cookies. I know that a lot of people grew up eating these as after-school snacks or saw them every year on holiday cookie trays, but believe it or not, I had never heard of them until a few years ago! These mounds of sugary, peanut buttery, chocolate goodness are incredibly addicting. They take only minutes to make and if you’re really desperate and don’t want to wait for them to set, you can eat the mixture straight from the bowl – no raw eggs to worry about!

Bon appetit!

These really are as easy as they sound, and a great recipe to make with kids if you have any little hands eager to help in the kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup whole or 2% milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
