  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 package Wilton's green candy melts



  1. Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla together in a medium sauce pan. Then, add in the peanut butter.

  2. Let this boil for about 3 minutes and then remove it from the heat. Pour the quick cooking oats into your peanut butter and chocolate sauce. Stir well and then let sit for about another 5 minutes.

  3. Lay wax paper on a cookie sheet and place a tree cookie cutter on it. Then, scoop the chocolate no bake cookies mixture into the cookie cutter.

  4. Place it in the freezer to let it sit for 5 minutes and then carefully remove the cookie cutter. Repeat for all the other cookies.

  5. Now, if you want to decorate the chocolate no bake cookies, you will want to melt the green candy melts. You can place them in a pastry bag or ziploc bag and soak it in hot water until the candy melts have gotten liquidy. 

  6. Cut a small hole in the pastry bag/ziploc bag and begin decorating these no bake cookies. Then enjoy!
