Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

This recipe is very easy but you need to be quick. Have all the ingredients pre-measured before you start for better results.

Combine in a medium sauce pan:
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cube butter or marg.

Bring to boil and boil for just two minutes--stirring constantly. Too long, they'll be dry. Too short, they wont set up. (Start timing the two minutes right when it starts boiling even if the cube of butter isn't completely melted.)

Immediately take off the heat and mix in:
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick oats
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt

Quickly spoon onto wax paper with a cookie scoop.  They set up as they cool and do not need to be refrigerated.  This makes a few over two dozen when using a 2inch cookie scoop.

YUM!

(I never claimed they were healthy. At all. Even a little.)
These ones are perfect

This batch got cooked a tiny bit too long, so they came out dry and a little crumbly.  But still delicious.
