Chocolate Peanut-Butter No Bake Cookies

I'm going to be honest when I tell you I thought these would be horrible. And, again with the honesty, when I tried them before they were cooled I thought I was right. (Note: Do NOT try these before they are completely cooled!). 

In fact, these are amazing. So amazing that I ate half a batch in a matter of like 2 days. And I decided they were breakfast cookie worthy because oats were in them. No? Eh, either way, these are a fast and easy cookie! And they are super duper yummy. Just let them cool. I mean that.

Enjoy a quick, chewy, deilicous and flavorful cookie! And thank me for finding this recipe later. Happy Tuesday, friends!

Oh, and, umm...since I ate the cookies when they were still warm and wasn't fond of them...I, umm, didn't take any more pictures. Because I ate the remaining and delicious cookies without even thinking of photographing them. Yes, I have a cheese and sweets addiction. Why do you think I never bake?!
