No Bake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 3 cups (often I do 3.5 cups) oatmeal (quick oats work better than regular oats)
  • (optional) between 1/2 and 1 cup of peanut butter can be added while mixture boils
  • if you use unsalted butter, add some salt (maybe 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon salt)

Add the butter, milk, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla to a pot. Mix and place on stove on medium heat, stirring occasionally. At first sign of boiling, set a timer and allow the mixture to boil for 4 minutes. Then remove the pan from the heat and add the oatmeal to the pot. Stir well and then spoon it onto a greased cookie sheet into the desired size of cookie you like. Allow to cool and dry for 10 or 15 minutes.
