Holiday Cheer – Chocolate Peanut Drops

by Anna on December 5, 2014

Oh, here’s another recipe a 2 year old (or any other child) can help with. Actually, I forgot I had this recipe.  I discovered it on my old blog site, while looking for my chocolate covered peanuts recipe (which I didn’t find right off, but I’ll post it later.  It is SUPER easy to make!).

1 stick butter or margarine

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

1½ cups quick-cooking oats

1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup chopped peanuts

½ cup peanut butter


In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Stir in cocoa and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in oats, sweetened condensed milk, peanuts and peanut butter. Mix well.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper-lined baking sheets. Chill 2 hours or until set. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Note: I didn’t have any peanuts in the house, but I did have cashews; so I used those instead and they worked just fine.
