Today’s recipe is for my kids and Hubby’s favorite cookie. When the kids were growing up these things disappear practically over night.
Be sure to use quick cooking oats and not the old fashioned oats. It does make a difference.
No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup stick butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups quick cooking oats (dry)
In a large sauce pan combine sugar and cocoa and blend well with a wire whisk. Add milk and butter and bring to a boil and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Stir in oats. Drop by teaspoonful onto wax paper. Let cool until cookies are set. Store in an air tight container.
