Poop Cookies

Published by Commandrea (Andrea Afra) at 8:19 PM

My oven recently stopped working and I was hit by a serious life threatening need for something chocolate the other night and I had all of the ingredients on hand to make 'poop' cookies. My friend Andrea Wiggins first made them for me and I took down her recipe which has come in handy quite a few times over the years.

They are a dense lump of peanutbuttery-chocolatey-oatmealy-fudge-like excellence that you can make in a pinch. I will not apologize for the name as it is funny and true: they look like little piles of poo, but they taste like little bites of nirvana. WARNING: If you are in need for an immediate sugar fix, note that these need to be refrigerated for about an hour before eating BUT the act of making them and a few licks of the spoon seem to be enough to tide you over until they are set. You can throw them in the freezer to speed things up.


1/2 cup milk

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine

4 tablespoons cocoa

1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)

3-3 1/2 cups dry quick-cooking oats

2 teaspoons vanilla

Wax paper & cookie sheet

1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring milk, sugar, butter, cocoa to a low boil for about a minute.

2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla

3. Drop mixture by 2 TBSPs on waxed paper covered cookie sheet

4. Refrigerate until firm, about one hour. Quick chill in freezer until firm to touch.

These cookies are easy to make and clean up after and definitely quell the sugar jones.

Soon to come: I am working on perfecting the Microwave Mug Cake. Results so far- 'above meh'.
