No Bake Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies

With very little active time, this recipe is great to make if you don't have a lot of time. Neither the peanut butter nor butterscotch flavor it too overpowering. They were a bit sticky. Instead of bars, next time, I will roll them into bite-sized balls.

1 cups butterscotch chips 
1/4 cup sugar 
1/4 cup milk 
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 cup rolled oats 

In a small sauce pan, melt together the butterscotch, sugar, milk, and margarine. Bring the mixture to a boil, and allow it to boil for about 2 minutes.
Remove the pan from heat and stir in peanut butter until it is fully incorporated.
Stir in rolled oats.
Pour mixture into an 8x8 pan, and refrigerate for 3 hours. After it has hardened, cut into squares.


  1. sounds delicious! will have to source some butterscotch chips :)

  2. I couldn't find a way to email you, so I thought I would leave a comment here in response to your question about the mini buns for my chipotle sliders. I just used wheat dinner rolls from the bakery section of the supermarket. Nothing fancy, but they did the trick.

    By the way, these cookies are making me salivate!

  3. oh my, those cookies look so good!

  4. those look so good!!! I love butterscotch but have never combined it with peanut butter! Sounds like a great combo

  5. I've only made chocolate/oatmeal no bakes before and love them. Definitely adding this to my to-bake list! :)
