Old Poodle New Tricks

Actually, it’s turning out to be a whole new poodle…

There is a Brzozowski family recipe for “Poodles”, those chocolate and peanut butter and oatmeal no-bake drop cookies  that you may remember from your childhood.  Well, I signed up to make some for our group pizza party, without checking the pantry.  Result: not nearly enough peanut butter.

In desperation, I used almond butter to extend the batch.  At least one Family Member is appalled, and that was before she found out that I was using a whole new recipe!

The good news: these things are delicious!   So instead of a lesson about checking the larder, the lesson is learning a new recipe.  This is for a very small batch – multiply as needed as I did:

All New Poodles

Mix 1 Tablespoon peanut butter, 1 Tablespoon almond butter, 2 tablespoons low-fat milk and 1/4 cup chocolate chips, over low heat, until chocolate melts.

Stir in 3/4 cup rolled oats. Remove from heat.  Drop blobs onto wax-paper-lined baking sheet.

Refrigerate 10 minutes if you can wait that long.
