No Bake Cow Pies

No Bake Cow Pies are my take on chocolate and peanut butter oatmeal cookies!
This easy dessert treat comes together in under 15 minutes.

I promise...these taste much better than they sound!

When I came up with the name in the back of my head I hoped no one was offended, and then that quickly became an afterthought.  I'm from Iowa, the heart of the Midwest, we have a LOT of livestock around these parts and even though I didn't grow up on a farm, I've been to my share of them.

And any farm with cows....has cow pies.  And if you don't know what I'm referring to, just Google it.  Long story short, these kinda look like cow pies.

Let's move on, shall we?

The kids were hankering for a snack these past weekend and I was out of MOST EVERYTHING.  

This past weekend it was these.  I had oatmeal.  I had cocoa.  I had peanut butter.  I figured I could come up with something out of those three ingredients.

This is also a great snack to make with your kids.  Once you get past the stove-top part and away from the heat, it's fairly easy to plop these little suckers down on some foil or parchment paper with a spoon. Just move quickly before they start to harden up on you.

Whenever I need a super quick sweet treat these are made. Start to finish done in under 15 minutes. Keep them in the fridge or in an airtight container and they will last several days.

But only if they don't all get eaten before that!

If you make this recipe I'd love for you to leave an easy star rating below on the attached recipe card. Those reviews help others to know if they should make a recipe or not!
