This is one of my boyfriends favourite recipes and a good sweet dish to make in hot weather since there's no oven involved to heat up your kitchen. You can also sub museli for the oats.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2⁄3 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups quick oats
- Mix sugar, butter, cocoa and milk together in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.
- Remove from the heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
- Drop from a teaspoon onto wax paper or a cookie sheet.
- Allow to cool.
The only problem that I have with this recipe is that I can't seem to stay away from them! I seem to be addicted. I nibbled when I made them and I keep coming back for more nibbles! They are supposed to be for my husband's lunch! Really great, easy recipe! Thank you for the inches to my waistline :)
I used to make these a lot when I was a teenager and just starting to experiment with cooking. I have 3 brothers and they always devoured them with glee! I lost the recipe back then and just happened to come across it here! Now I am the Mom in my own house and I am going to make these with my son right now as it is a rainy Sunday and also Football Day! Go Bucs!!!! Thanks so much for the recipe! I never knew them as "Frogs", but my son will love that name!
One of DH's favs, as is anything with peanut butter. I make these a lot in the winter. So easy and so yummy!!
