Category: Desserts, Cookies
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Level: Easy to Make
Yield: 2 - 3 Dozen Cookies
1/2 c. margarine, or butter
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. peanut butter
3 c. old-fashioned oats
Measure 1/4 c. cocoa first, just because it smells so good! ;o)
In a medium size pot, add sugar, butter, cocoa, chocolate chips, and milk.
Stir and boil for 3 minutes, over medium-high heat.
Remove from heat, add vanilla.
Stir in peanut butter and oats.
Continue stirring till cookie mixture is combined well.
Drop cookies by tablespoon onto wax paper to set.
Hint: If you're in a hurry... slide cookies with wax paper onto a flat tray or baking sheet and place in the fridge to chill. They will set very quickly this way. I'm not sure if you need to store these cookies in the fridge, but we did. They are, um, I mean, they WERE delicious!
