You know how sometimes you need a cookie that you can whip together quickly and be done? Well this is one of those cookies and it’s a yummy one!
School is starting soon, or has already started all across the country. If you have kids you know that means busy, busy, busy. Even if you don’t have kids, you still know how busy life can be. Life tends to get a little crazy at times.
An easy go-to cookie seemed like the perfect choice for today.
Today’s cookie is a cookie that comes together very quickly with a few simple ingredients. Most, or all of these ingredients you probably have sitting in your pantry right now.
So let’s started, we have cookies to make!
These cookies are great all by themselves, or you can dip them in chocolate. As you can see, I have dipped my cookies in chocolate just to give them a special little touch.
It just depends on how you’re feeling that day.
These are most of the simple ingredients you will need for these cookies. There are only a few chocolates in the photograph but you will want to have a full bag on hand. Also I forgot to include the baking soda in the picture, sorry.
These cookies have plenty of oatmeal in them, yet they are still very moist. I think you will find it surprising how good cookies can be with just a few simple ingredients.
When your cookies are cool and you’re ready to dip them please remember you can use any kind of chocolate that makes you happy! I used Dove because I love how easy it is to work with. So I pick it up when it’s on sale.
Anyway, you could use chocolate melts, chocolate chips or any other kind of chocolate you prefer! Then add a few sprinkles, and you’re set!
Now all you need is a tall glass of cold milk and you’ve got a great snack!
Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup dark chocolate peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1-1/4 cups quick-cooking oats, any brand
1 package (3.4 oz.) vanilla instant pudding mix
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag (9.5 oz.) Dove milk chocolate, chocolate chips, or any chocolate you prefer
chocolate jimmies, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
2. Place chocolate peanut butter and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add oats, vanilla pudding mix, and baking soda to creamed mixture; mix well.
2. With a medium cookie scoop, place dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 inch apart. Bake for 6-8 minutes and remove from oven. My cookies took exactly 7 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then move to wire rack to cool completely.
3. Line large cookie sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate for 30 seconds at a time until melted well and smooth. Dip each cookie into chocolate, using as much or as little as desired. Allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place cookie on waxed paper, if using sprinkles add immediately. Allow cookies to rest until chocolate has set up and can be touched.
*Note: You will probably have a little extra melted chocolate.
