I went to the BF’s parents' house for Easter. I love Easter and all the sugary celebrations it brings. But between the courses of cakes and brownies I was introduced to a regional favorite: Tewksbury Tweets.
With a cultish following, these no-bake cookies are a yummy cluster of oatmeal, chocolate and peanut butter. According to what I was told in my introduction, they were/are served in public-school cafeterias around Tewksbury, MA. Just imagine a plop of fudge with texture.
I hunted down the recipe- super easy! No bake!
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, until cooled and hardened.
