No Bake Cookies- So Yummy!

Sometimes, you just need a good, old-fashioned, easy recipe that reminds you of home. For me, these cookies have it all. They are easy, quick and always delicious (not to mention, my husband LOVES them)! Take a little time and try them, you won’t regret it! 

2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal (quickoats or old fashioned)
Waxed paper


In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, until cooled and hardened.
