Kiki Lowenstein rarely has time to bake. In the early books in the series, she doesn’t even have an oven that works. But she loves sweets, and she particularly adores peanut butter and chocolate. If you ask her, Kiki would swear these cookies are healthy because of the oatmeal!

Kiki’s Healthy (?) Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies


2 C. granulated sugar

1 stick butter

½ C. milk

1/3 C. baking cocoa

1 C. peanut butter (smooth or chunky)

1 tsp. vanilla

A pinch kosher salt

3 C. oats (uncooked, quick or old-fashioned)


Line a baking sheet or plate with waxed paper.

Bring sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa to a boil.

Stir in vanilla and salt until combined.

Add peanut butter until well mixed

Mix in oatmeal

Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper. Chill.

Try very hard not to eat them all in 24 hours.


About the book  

On a sweltering day, ace scrapbooker Kiki Lowenstein has to cancel a crafting party when she discovers Marla Lever, their hostess, nearly dead of the heat. Not only is Marla seriously “under the weather,” she’s also a hoarder, and her home is a house of horrors, complete with a corpse in the cooler. Meanwhile, Detective Chad Detweiler works a cold case that involves women disappearing all over St. Louis. The attraction between Kiki and Detweiler heats to a red-hot fever pitch, but will it boil over and leave both of them feeling burned?
