Mississippi Mud Cookies

Being from the West, I’d never heard of Mississippi mud cookies before Bianca mentioned them on her blog.

Her pictures looked so tempting, I had to look up a recipe, and found a few similar ones such as this one here and this one.

I love that AllRecipes offers comments on the recipes, but unfortunately didn’t find their recipe until after the fact, so here’s how things went down:IMG_2436

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Wipe 1" wide band of butter around the rim of a 3 quart pan to prevent boil-over.
  2. Combine milk, sugar, cocoa, butter and peanut butter.
  3. Stir and bring to boil over medium heat. Let boil for 1 1/2 minutes, do not stir.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir in oats and vanilla. Stir until oats evenly distributed.
  5. Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper. Cool. Makes 4 to 5 dozen.


Comments: So, these never set up…it seems that I didn’t boil the mix long enough? Fail. =(
