No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies

(and it's not the holidays, which is when I usually make lots of them)

So here are a few reasons I decided to make these cookies recently:

They add an extra hug when packed in lunches for the girls and hubby!

I should drink more milk...these help me to do so.

we just...
NEED chocolate!

These are healthy cookies - they have oats in the them (smile).

They actually are healthier then store bought cookies - just read the ingredients on the package.

One of my Aunts gave me this recipe many years ago...'nough said, right?
If it's a family recipe, it HAS to be good!

It starts with sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa...

some vanilla and creamy peanut butter...

and finished off by adding the oats

No Bake Cookies
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp. cocoa
1 tbsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. peanut butter
3 cups old fashioned oats

In a pot, combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa.  Bring to a boil.  Stirring constantly, boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Add vanilla and peanut butter.  Stir until all combined.
While stirring add 3 cups of oats. 
At this point you need to move quickly, before the cookies start setting up in the pot.
Drop by the heaping tablespoons onto wax paper.
Cool slightly.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.

It looks kinda messy with all those crumbs between the cookies, so go ahead and eat them up...makes a better presentation ;-)
