Growing up, my family loved the richer version of these no-bake cookies. My own children later did, too. Somehow, though, I always felt guilty making and eating them, so with some experimentation, came up with this healthier version. They aren't as sweet or caloric, but take that pinch off the hunger for chocolate lovers. Hope others enjoy them!

  • 3Stir till very smooth. Add peanut butter and stir in completely with spoon.
  • 4Last, add in the rolled oats and stir again well until all oats are coated with chocolate mixture.
  • 5Form 1 1/4" balls (a melon ball scoop works well for scooping rounded even amounts; then roll completely into balls). Place on a large plate or cookie sheet.
  • 6Cover loosely and keep refrigerated until serving. Makes about 28-32 snackers. Enjoy as a snack or light dessert.
