Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

I had no choice but to make these cookies because they are my boyfriend's favorite! When we were on our way to Maryland he had to stop at Sheetz gas station to buy their packaged chocolate no bake cookies. I was snuck a cookie out of his bag and instantly feel in love. These are super easy to make and I really like the texture that the oats add to the cookies. You can't help but love these! They are perfect for the cookie jar on the kitchen counter or for the tins that you plan to give to neighbors, coworkers, family, and friends!

These were also a great addition to my christmas cookie tins because this recipe makes so many! So lets teach ya how to make them!
