"Mommy, can you please make gorilla poop cookies again?"
What are you talking about?
"You made gorilla poop cookies a long time ago. I want you to make those again, please. You didn't have to bake them. And they have peanut butter and oats and chocolate."
That does not sound familiar...and definitely doesn't sound like something I would make.
"You did. Can you look up a recipe?"
I made them today...and D was ecstatic. Apparently everyone in the house remembers when I made these before. Really?!? And they were all excited that I made them again. "Take a photo," commanded Jake. "Mom actually made the same thing twice."
Though I still doubt that I ever made these, a quick search rendered lots of variations of the recipe. I mixed and matched based on what D remembers them to be.
- 3 C rolled oats
- 1 C semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 1 C organic chunky peanut butter
- 1/2 C butter
- 1/2 C milk
- 1-1/2 C organic granulated sugar
- 5 T unsweetened cocoa powder
Place oats, chocolate chunks, and peanut butter together in a large mixing bowl. Place butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa powder together in a medium sauce pan. Over medium heat, whisk until the butter is melted and the mixture smooth. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute.
Pour the butter mixture into the mixing bowl and toss to coat. Spoon tablespoon-sized mounds onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let cool to set.
