Kids in the Kitchen – Kooky Cookies

You and your kids will have a ball with this no-bake treat that’s homemade in a hurry.

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, room-temperature
  • 3 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal (optional)
  • 12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbs. shortening or Vegetable Oil

Preparation:

  1. Melt the peanut butter and butter in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds. Stir the mixture with a fork to prevent clumping.
  2. Add the vanilla and oatmeal (if you choose to use it) and blend the mixture again.
  3. Add the powdered sugar. The mixture should now look thick and be a good consistency to roll into balls.
  4. Your kids can help you form dough into 1-inch balls by rolling it between their hands or you can also use a cereal spoon to measure out and shape the mixture. Place the balls onto a plate or cookie sheet. Place them in the freezer to chill for about an hour.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips and oil in the microwave.
  6. Now you’re ready to coat your dough balls with chocolate. You can use toothpicks, a spoon, or other kitchen tools for dipping. You can even drizzle the chocolate over the top of the dough if you’d like.
  7. Place the finished product in the freezer to chill. Keep them there until ready to serve. This no-bake treat is quite tasty in its frozen form.
