Dark Side Cookies

Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies! I used to find this saying slightly amusing though very absurd if you analyze it. I mean, where did the Dark Side get cookies? What Sith Lord would confess to a baking habit? And I am sure that if anyone on the Dark Side did bake, they wouldn't turn out very tasty. 
But then I realized that you don't need to have a baking skill to be able to craft wonderful cookies. My eldest sister use to make these wonderful cookies all the time. Unfortunately she stopped making them when my older brothers teased her that there was poop on the counter. These are my favorite cookies, they aren't baked and they look like poop. Sounds like the perfect Dark Side cookie temptation if you ask me!

Dark Side Cookies
36 Cookies | Total Time: 45 Minutes | Apprentice

  • 1 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 4 tbl Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 3 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Wax Paper
    Craft: In a medium saucepan, combine milk, sugar, butter and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats and vanilla. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool until hardened.

    Strategies: You can use instant oats or regular oats for this recipe. You also have the choice of crunchy or creamy peanut butter. It all depends on your texture preference. Additionally, if you have room in your fridge, cooling the cookies there helps them set faster if you are in a time crunch, or just impatient.

    • Cocoa Powder $1.89
    • Oats $0.98
    • Wax Paper $1.45
    Total Cost: $4.32
    Cost Per Serving: $0.12
    *This meal contains staple items such as spices that you may or may not have in your pantry so your cost may vary.
