Show us your life-Christmas recipes!!

Today Kelly's Show Us Your Life is Christmas goodies/cookies!  I LOVE baking at Christmas time.  But I don't have a lot of time so I like to make good, quick treats!  I am going to show two today, they are both super easy and very tasty!!  Try them you will love them and they don't take any time at all to make!

These are Brock's favorite cookies of all time.  He has started to help me make them, I really like that he likes baking with me :)  I am going to a cookie exchange party next weekend and I am going to make these cookies they are ALWAYS a hit!

No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup  peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened
My next recipe is Puppy Chow.  I made this in high school Home Ec class and I have made it every Christmas since then!  I LOVE it!! I could eat a whole batch-ha ha!  Earlier this week I made it for some of the college students I work with, they really liked it too!
Puppy Chow

1 cup creamy peanut butter
