No-Bake Cookies

Mmmmm.  I have a real fixation with all things chocolate.  Can you tell?  Here's an oldie, but goodie.  This cookie never gets old, and has the added bonus of being oven-free.  The next time the weather spikes, but you still have a feel for a cookie, pull this one out.

No-Bake Cookies

3 cups sugar
4 to 5 Tbs. cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
3 cups oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in large saucepan.  Heat until boiling.  Remove from heat and add in oats, peanut butter, and vanilla, stirring well.  Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper.  Let it cool...get your hands out of there!  Okay...now enjoy.

  1. Do I have to take the time and drop it on the wax paper? It's sooooo good straight out of the saucepan! Oh, that's right, I'm supposed to share. We'll see . . . . . .
