Cocoa Butter Balls

23 Jun

This is one of my favorite recipes from when I was a kid. Back in the 80’s I had a children’s cooking set called Now You’re Cooking.  This was my favorite recipe to make because it is easy and tastes so good.  


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats


  1. Place margarine in a medium glass bowl and microwave on 50% power for 1 minute, or until melted.
  2. Add brown sugar, peanut butter, cocoa and stir until combined.
  3. Mix in all of the oats.
  4. Scoop out to make 16 balls and place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled and set.
