No Bake Cookies

Author: Toni Anderson

Ingredients

  • 1 Stick of butter you can use margarine
  • 2 Cups of sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 3 Cups Oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • In a large pot, add the first four ingredients.
  • Stir over a low heat until everything is melted.
  • Once the ingredients have melted, slightly increase the heat.
  • Stir occasionally until the mixture starts to boil. This is what I mean by boiling.
  • Boil for one minute, no more, no less.
  • Remove from heat and immediately add the vanilla and peanut butter.
  • Mix together quickly then add the oats.
  • Quickly spoon the mixture onto wax paper. Spoon quickly, the mixture firms up very fast in the pot. They will be ready to eat in about five minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Notes

These cookies are so delish! I have even convinced myself they are healthy because of the oats! Actually if anyone has a healthy version of the recipe please share. If I had to try a healthy version, I would use natural peanut butter, skim milk, and substitute the sugar for something… hmmm, any ideas?
