As a kid my mom made this recipe with 3 cups of white sugar, 1/2 cup butter, cocoa, milk and peanut butter. We called them, Yum, Yums. I have continued to make this recipe but with healthier ingredients. When a chocolate craving hits, this is our family’s “go to” recipe. Unbaked Fudge Cookies are super easy to make and only takes a few minutes to prepare.
NOTE The fats in this recipe come primarily from the coconut milk which are healthy fats.

- 2 cups chocolate chips, we used Enjoy Life brand
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, we use extra-crunchy
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- In a large saucepan, combine chocolate chips, coconut sugar and coconut milk. On low heat, allow chocolate to melt while stirring every few minutes. Keep a close watch on the mixture making sure it doesn't burn. When chocolate is completely melted, remove from heat. Add vanilla and peanut butter, stir to combine. Fold oats into mixture and stir to well.
- Using a tablespoon, drop cookies onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and shape into irregular balls. Allow to cool completely before placing in a container with lid. Note: Cookies will continue to get firm after being refrigerated. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
- TIP Mixture can also be added to a cake pan. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray and spread evenly, cool to room temperature and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Cut into small squares before serving.
