Makes approx. two dozen.
You will need:
2 cups white sugar (if you prefer them less sweet, you can use 1.5 cups of sugar)
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 pinch salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add sugar, cocoa, butter, milk, and salt to saucepan. Stir ingredients.
While stirring, bring to a full, rolling boil for two minutes. (Make sure it’s a rapid boil, or the cookies will not set properly.) Remain stirring for the entire two minutes. Turn down heat and add vanilla, then add peanut butter.
Add quick cooking oats.
Mix well. Quickly drop mixture by the spoonful onto parchment paper. If the mixture starts to harden – return to stove, add a little milk and stir.
Let cool. Enjoy!
