These cookies are so addicting that they should come with a warning label. Enjoy!
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups of sugar
1/2 stick of butter
3/4 cup of peanut butter (i use smooth.. the original recipe has less PB)
1/2 cup of milk (I’ve used 4 oz. of evaporated milk before when I was out of milk)
1/3 cup cocoa
3 cups of quick oatmeal
1 tsp of vanilla
In a medium sauce pan, stirring constantly, combine sugar, butter, cocoa and milk on MEDIUM heat. Bring to just before it bubbles and then add peanut butter. Heat to a slow boil, stirring constantly, and then boil for about 1 minute or 1 1/2 minutes. Take off heat and quickly add vanilla and then oatmeal.
Stir oatmeal in until all is well coated and then spoon out cookie sized shapes onto waxed paper lined newspaper. Let them cool and when they are hard, store in ziplock or tupperware.
You can even freeze them for later.
