Step 1: Melting the Margarine

Begin your cookie adventure by melting the margarine in a microwave-safe bowl. Simply pop it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds until it's completely melted. This step is crucial as it forms the base of our cookie mixture, ensuring that all other ingredients blend seamlessly for that perfect cookie texture.
Pro Tip: Cut the margarine into small pieces for even melting.

Step 2: Combining Cocoa

Once your margarine is melted, it’s time to blend in the cocoa until it's completely dissolved. This step guarantees your cookies will have that rich, chocolatey flavor and a mesmerizing dark color. Make sure there are no lumps to ensure the smooth texture of your cookies.
Pro Tip: Sift your cocoa powder to avoid lumps.

Step 3: Adding Sweetness and Boiling

Now, stir in the sugar, milk, and a dash of salt into your chocolate mix. Mix these well before microwaving on high for around 1 minute and 10 seconds to bring it to a full boil. Achieving a full boil is key, as it allows the sugar to dissolve properly, giving your cookies just the right texture and sweetness.
Pro Tip: Monitor closely to prevent the mixture from scorching.

Step 4: Final Mix & Shaping

Finally, take your bowl out of the microwave and add in the vanilla, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Give it a good stir until everything is well combined. This is where the magic happens, and your cookie dough comes to life. Once mixed, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper. Let them cool until they set and become firm to the touch. Congratulations, your No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are ready to enjoy!
Pro Tip: Use a cookie scoop for evenly sized cookies.
