This nostalgic recipe is one that many kids grew up making. Seeing as there's no baking to do, it's easy for little fingers to lend a hand and feel like they've made the cookies (almost) all on their own. The recipe below combines several cookie flavors from vanilla to peanut butter to chocolate to make a homey, satisfying no-bake cookie the whole family will love.
The only cooking you'll need to do to make these cookies is melting together the butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk. Once that step is complete, you'll mix in the other ingredients, roll them into balls, and allow them to cool until they can be picked up, dunked in milk, and enjoyed!

½ cup butter
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup milk
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick-cooking oats
One pinch salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the sugar, milk, and cocoa powder and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute.
Pour the mixture into a bowl, and add the peanut butter, vanilla, oats, and salt. Mix well to combine.
When the mixture is well-combined, stir in the chocolate chips. Use a tablespoon to scoop out balls of dough, and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down on them slightly to make a cookie disk.
Allow to sit at room temperature for 20 to 25 minutes, until set.
