QUICK CHOCOLATE FIX COOKIES
I love chocolate and I’ve been known to hit the kitchen like a ravening beast in search of . . . something, anything chocolate. One of the reasons I love this particular recipe is because it’s quick and easy to make and actually has some good ingredients like oatmeal and peanut butter in it, so it makes a great snack for kids. (Mine always liked it, anyway!) I’ve had this recipe for so many years I don’t even remember where I got it. But I do remember it tastes really good. In fact, I just made some. Aaaah. Chocolate.
No Bake Chocolate Cookies
2 cups sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup cocoa
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup margarine
3 cups oats
1 tsp. vanilla
Directions: Combine in a medium saucepan: sugar, cocoa, milk, and margarine. Boil for one minute. Remove from stove and add oats, peanut butter, and vanilla and stir until mixed. After mixture cools a little drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.
