No Bake Cookies

These take me back to high school when we made these in Mrs. Robbins' Home Economics class.  My partner and I had a blast stirring these things up, and then eating them.  It was a lot of fun, and I still love them to this day.  So simple and such a great flavor combination.  I could eat them all up!


Mrs. Robbins' No Bake Cookies
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. milk
1 stick butter, cut up
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. quick oats, or just old fashioned oatmeal.  (I like them more chewy so I use the old fashioned)

Mix sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in a saucepan over med heat until it comes to a boil.  Stirring, let it boil 1 minute.  Take off heat.  Stir in vanilla, peanut butter until smooth and then add your oatmeal.  Stir until well combined.  Spoon onto parchment paper and let cool so the get nice and set up. 

Enjoy!
