To make these no bake cookies, I started by dumping some softened butter, smooth peanut butter and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.
I used an electric mixer to cream the ingredients together until smooth.
Then I poured some Reese’s peanut butter baking chips into a glass bowl.
I microwaved the baking chips on High for one minute and then stirred them well.
The chips weren’t completely melted, so I returned the bowl to the microwave for another thirty seconds on High.
I stirred the baking chips well again and this time they were completely melted.
I poured the melted peanut butter baking chips into the mixing bowl.
I continued mixing with the electric mixer.
Then I added some quick oats to the bowl.
I used the electric mixer to combine the oats with the peanut butter mixture.
Then I added some mini M&M’s to the bowl.
I used my hands to incorporate the M&M’s into the cookie dough.
Then I rolled the cookie dough into balls approximately one and a half inches in diameter and placed them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
I pressed down on the dough balls to form cookie shapes.
Then I placed the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chilled the cookies for 45 minutes.
These tasty no bake cookies are the perfect treat for peanut butter lovers.
