Spring Cookies

Pin It
It's time for cookies!  Spring cookies at that.  Actually my Mom made these cookies quite a bit when I was growing up except she omitted the peanut butter.  Once they are made (either recipe) they are addicting and I have a difficult time passing by them without grabbing one or two. 
To make them look a little more like a 'spring' cookie, I added colored chocolate eggs to make them appear like a little bird's nest. 
Oh so easy and oh so tasty!
Now I could not find my original recipe so I turned to Pinterest and there it was .... first one that popped up after I hit the search button.  I do want to give credit to the website where I copied the recipe from and Morgan from One More Moore had the recipe I wanted.
Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Spring Nest Cookies
1/2 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 - 3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 teaspoons vanilla
Add the first four ingredients in a saucepan. 
Bring to a rolling boil and boil for one minute.  Stir in the next three ingredients and drop onto wax paper.  Let cool until I dropped a tablespoon into little candy paper cups and added 2 candy coated chocolate eggs. 
They only take about 15 minutes to set enough to eat and eat we did! 
Happy baking and remember to give your loved ones a hug! 


  1. Hi Debbie,¨
    I'm fond of no-bake cookies. Yours look d-e-l-i-i-c-i-o-u-s and so sweet with the small eggs :)

  2. Good Afternoon Debbie, Oh no! I am trying to eat healthily at the moment, but these cookies look so lovely and are very tempting. I have "tucked" the recipe away to try them when I am not being so know me, it does not take much to make me falter.
    Hope that snow is melting.
    Best Wishes

  3. We had these occasionally when I was growing up. Like you, we omitted the peanut butter then.

  4. I love the eggs on top - such a cute idea :) They sound wonderful and since I have been craving some sweet treats maybe this will be on my menu of satisfying my sweet tooth :) Thanks for sharing!


  5. Yum, those look delicious! Thanks for the recipe. :)

  6. Gained 10 lbs. just looking at the pictures.. They look soooo yummy! Good thing I don't have oats in the house, so can't make them. :P

  7. Growing up we always called these peanut butter delights. When Jon and I first started dating he had talked of how much he loved no bake cookies. I didn't realize until later that they were the same thing. We all devour them in our house! Cute addition with the eggs.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
