Peanut Butter Mounds: Cook with your Kids #FamilyMeals

My boys love baking with me, and I love having them in the kitchen. There are lots of lessons that can be learned along the way. Math lessons…cooking lessons…baking lessons…and also…helping others!

We were recently asked by Collective Bias to Cook with our kids and share what we made with someone in need.

Casey wanted to make Peanut Butter Swirl Bars, but Dad’s vote won, and we made No Bake Peanut Butter Mounds. This recipe is great for kids to help with, although, you may want to do the cooking on the stove, depending on the age of your children.

No Bake Peanut Butter Mounds and Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa…a yummy treat!

Let your kids join you in the kitchen and make some Peanut Butter Mounds together with this recipe from HoosierHomemade.com!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) Parkay Margarine
  • 3 cups oats (quick cooking or regular)
  • 1/2 cup Peter Pan Peanut Butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  2. Prepare all your ingredients {disregard the Wesson oil, we thought we were making Peanut Butter Swirl Bars}
  3. In a heavy saucepan, add the sugar
  4. And then the cocoa, stir together
  5. Pour in the milk
  6. Unwrap the Parkay
  7. Add it to the pan, bring to a boil on the stove and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly
  8. While Mom is stirring the mixture, the kids can measure the oats and Peanut Butter. Add oats, then the Peanut Butter and vanilla, stir until well combined.
  9. Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper that is sprayed lightly with Pam Cooking Spray, let set until cool {or eat them warm like we do}

While the cookies are setting up, mix up a batch of Swiss Miss Cocoa in your Hot Cocoa Machine. Add some Reddi-wip or marshmallows and enjoy!

We decided to share some with our friend, Mrs. Dunifon. She is an elderly lady who is shut in. Doug mows her grass and shovels her snow.

She was thrilled to see us!!

  1. My family calls them NoBake Cookies (peanut butter listed as optional). When I was 10 I had the recipe memorized I made them so much!
    (and please, give your husband a big hug for being such an incredible neighbor!)

  2. We make these a lot too – but around here we call them Preacher Cookies. Supposedly, you could whip up a batch of them back in the day if you saw your preacher walking towards your house to visit, and they’d be ready by the time he got to your door.
    Looks like you all had a lot of fun making them together…I love baking with my little guy!
