These are a delicious chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookie that are so easy to make on the stove , our family have been making these for years and they are a family favorite. I make these about once a week because they get eaten up fast around here.

You can omit the peanut butter and add coconut and/or nuts to these cookies also and they are just as delicious but we prefer them they this way most of the time.
