I made this exactly as stated with the only differences being I used rolled oats (not quick cooking) and Jif peanut butter because these are what I had on hand. They're thick and creamy, loaded with chocolate flavour, naturally. Serve them this peanut butter cup-inspired oatmeal, instead. The popular cereal is basically just sugar dressed up as breakfast. This, meanwhile, has basically the same amazing sweet flavor with none of the bad stuff.
