Cookie with Many Names {Sweets and Treats #5 and a Guest Post!}

Well, today is the final day of my {Sweets and Treats} Week her on This Mommy Cooks. Since I only made four things for my goodie boxes I asked my sweet friend Sieglinde of Siggy Spice to do a guest post for me. I asked her because I love her blog and I knew she had tons of yummy sweet goodies to share. So, enjoy today's recipe, brought to you by Siggy Spice! Thanks Siggy!

Hi there! My name is Sieglinde, aka Siggy Spice. I am so honored that Amber asked me to guest post today! As you all know, she is a fabulous person whose food makes your tummy rumble and heart smile at the same time. This Mommy Cooks is definitely on my "speed dial" for scrumptious breakfast, lunch, or dinner ideas....and let's not forget the desserts!

I am not sure about you, but I am covered in flour and sugar at the moment wrapping up all my holiday baking. While I like to audition different recipes this time of the year, there are those tried and true sweet nibbles that are ALWAYS on my goody trays. These cookies are definitely one of those items. Several years ago I made these cookies into small truffle sized balls. My then 8-year old son started calling them Reindeer Poop...and much to my chagrin, the name has stuck! Whether you call them No Bake's, Chewy Fudgy Treats, Cow Pie's, or Reindeer Poop, they are sure to bring a smile to your face!

Cookie with Many Names
from Siggy Spice

• 2 cups sugar
• ½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
• ½ cup milk
• 1/3 cup powdered cocoa, I use Hershey's Cocoa
• 2/3 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
• 3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place piece of wax paper or foil on tray, cookie sheet, our counter.

Combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, cool 1 minute.

Add peanut butter and vanilla, stir quickly until peanut butter is smooth. Add oats and stir to thoroughly combine. Quickly drop mixture by spoonful onto waxed paper or foil. Cool completely. ENJOY!

Wishing you all the HAPPIEST of holidays and a New Year filled with MUCH love, health, and happiness - xoxo
