These clusters are such an easy and tasty treat to whip up and you probably have the simple ingredients on hand. They reminded me of the cornflake and butterscotch globs I use to make as a kid! (Those were really yummy too. I'll have to make those and post the recipe soon!)
If you like the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, then try these quick, no-bake oatmeal clusters. It's hard not keep picking up another yummy bite!
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, until cooled and hardened.
* I cut the recipe in half and it made around 20 bite-sized clusters.
* I had some neighbors that made these and they needed some chilling time in the freezer to set-up. It's very humid here so that could be the issue. Cutting back on the sugar and adding a scoop more peanut butter may help too!
