No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies

Betty Bernard, via Food Writers’ Favorites: Cookies

Makes: 3 dozen

  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats, uncooked

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Bring to a boil; boil for one minute (use a time, and don’t overcook!). Stir in vanilla, peanut butter and oats; mix thoroughly. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool.

*Chef’s note: These have a sugary consistency almost like fudge. I like the flavor, but I’m not sure about the texure just yet. I do prefer them cold, though; it helps them set if you put them in the fridge once they cool.
