Chocolate and peanut butter is the #1 best flavor combo.

Remember how there was always that one house on Halloween night that gave out Reese's and not, like, Sweet Tarts or, god forbid, apples? Good karma forever to those souls.

Here's a cute way to eat PB and chocolate in a homemade Halloween treat. BONUS: You probably have all the ingredients.

How to make No-Bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tombstones

Makes about 10 cookies

Recipe by Lindsay Hunt


1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

½ cup smooth peanut butter

¼ cup cocoa powder

2 cups quick-cooking oats

White decorating icing


Put the chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in the microwave on 30 second bursts, stirring in between. Stir in the peanut butter and cocoa powder, then stir in the oats. Use your hands to mush everything to make sure it's well incorporated.

To form the tombstones, take about 2 tablespoons of the dough and mold into a tombstone shape. It helps to make them into ovals, then press one of the ends against a flat surface.

Use the white icing to write sayings on the tombstones like RIP, BOO, XX, or anything else you like. Then, let sit until the icing hardens, about 20 minutes.
