"Used 2% milk because it was what I had on hand and based on other comments, stirred in 1/2 c. peanut butter. Perfect...exactly what I remember no-bake cookies tasting like!"

"Love these. They are so easy to make. I was thinking that I might add some peanut butter to the recipe the next time I make this. I'm glad to see others have already done this with good results. Thanks for sharing."
