No Bake Cookies? Yes Please!

My old roommate used to make these no bake cookies that are to die for. Yes, you heard right. No Bake! I haven't had them in forever and Jim was craving something sweet last night so I had him help me make these delicious treats.

Here's the easy recipe:

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 stick margarine
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

In a heavy saucepan mix sugar, cocoa, milk and margarine.

Cook on medium heat until it comes to a good boil. Remove from heat & cool for one minute.

Add vanilla, salt, peanut butter and oatmeal.

Mix well and drop by small spoon fulls on waxed paper. Wait about 10 minutes and VOILA!!!

I'll probably be making these for mine and Jim's coworkers for the holidays. They'll be perfect little giftbags.
Happy Tuesday!!!
