I love these things. I got this recipe from my Granny. She makes them every time I come over.
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 tablespoons cocoa
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 2 1⁄2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Mix and cook sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk over medium heat. Let boil for about 1 1/2 minutes or until it forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
- Remove from heat, add vanilla and peanut butter. Mix well, then add oats. Mix.
- Spoon onto wax paper and let cool.
Very good & easy to make!!! I have the same recipe, only called "Quick Cookies" with just a couple differences. 1/4 cup cocoa(easier for measuring), 1/2 cup butter, 3 cups quick-cooking oats, 1 tsp. vanilla. Boiling time on mine is 2 1/2 minutes. Can't go wrong making these, they are excellent!!!
