“Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi.” — Oprah Winfrey
These were the most chewy, moist, and scrumptious no-bake, oat, peanut butter, and cocoa powder cookies. Just perfect for those hot, hot days when you don’t want to turn on the oven but your sweet tooth is a-calling. These Mississippi Mud Cookies were a summer breeze to make and they set up nicely. A warning to you though, they are highly addictive!
Another instant favorite from Cookin’ Crunk by Bianca Phillips, page 167.
Cocoa Fact: What’s the difference between cacao and cocoa? Cacao is the bean and cocoa is the product that is made from it.
