Recipe of the Week..."Nutties"

Here's a sweet treat that is fantastically fast to whip up! Served with a big glass of cold milk, these can satisfy a craving for chocolate and peanut butter all at once!

  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 3 cups raw quick oats
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
In a large pan combine margarine, sugar, milk and vanilla. Bring to a rolling boil and allow to boil for 1 minute unstirred. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until melted. Add quick oats and chopped peanuts and stir until mixture is completely combined. Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper and allow to thoroughly cool. Once cooled, microwave chocolate chips in glass mixing bowl in 30 second increments until melted. (Stir melting chips every 30 seconds). Drizzle melted chocolate over cooled cookies and allow chocolate to become firm. Place in air tight container to keep fresh.
