Peanut butter and chocolate are a perfect combination. My cookie recipe can be changed to suit your sweet tooth. Try adding almond or mint extract. These cookies make a fun garnish for ice cream, too.—Beth Brown, Naples, Florida


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cocoa; add butter and milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in oats, coconut, peanut butter and vanilla.
