Chocolate, You Complete Me

My love is vast and deep and wide,
Although you add some jiggle to my sides.
I love you more than I can say,
Without you I couldn't complete a day.
~Original poetry by yours truly.

Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! Add that to two of my other favorite ingredients, peanut butter and oatmeal, and I'm smitten. As soon as I saw these treats on Eat, Live, Run ( I knew they were made for me and me for them.

As Valentine's Day approaches I know who has my heart! No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, will you be my valentine?

makes about 3 dozen small cookies

3 T butter

1/4 cup milk

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 heaping tablespoons cocoa

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup peanut butter (I like crunchy all natural peanut butter here)

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

Melt the butter on the stove. Add the sugar, cocoa and milk and stir well. Add the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Stir. Add the oats. Stir again.

With wet hands, form little balls of dough and on a wax paper lined plate or pan. Refrigerate for thirty minutes until hard.

And the two lived happily ever after. The End.

I was just pointed to your blog by my daughter, Jessie, who has been bragging you up. She recommends you highly so I am sorry that my first contact with you has to be as bearer of bad news. Chocolate is going away in 2014.

Last, this is the WORST news. Whatever will I do?!?!? :)
Blessings upon you!
