my weakness

we all have them. they take many forms. my weakness has always been the mixture of chocolate and peanut butter. as a kid i remember making these simple but delicious cookies with my mom. they were always a treat. tonight i looked around the cabinets and discovered that i had the ingredients* to make my guilty pleasure. i've also made these vegan before, and they were still delicious (*this recipe can be adapted to your liking)

1/4 cup stick butter
1/4 cup sugar (i used turbinado)
1/2 cup milk (i only had cream on hand tonight)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
about 2 cups oats (quick cooking or regular oats work fine)

melt butter and chocolate chips. stir in sugar and milk. when it starts boiling,
remove from heat, add peanut butter and oats. stir together. drop into mounds onto wax paper.

sometimes they crumble or remain gooey. look around online for a recipe you like. i don't really mind that they're messy. i could eat them with a spoon straight from the pot :)
