My family loves these and they are so easy to make!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄4 cup margarine, softened
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups quick oats
- Mix together sugar, margarine, milk, cocoa, and vanilla. Heat in microwave 2 minutes. Stir. Heat in microwave 2 more minutes. Stir in peanut butter until well blended. Add oats. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Allow time to cool.
- * Measure oats carefully; too much and they will be too dry.
I have made these for years with the stovetop version and my kids loved them. I prefer them withouth the peanut butter and either chopped nuts or coconut added. They disappear real fast. Thanks for the updated recipe.
I used real Butter instead of Margarine and Chunky Peanut Butter. Perfect! Thanks for sharing!
My aunt taught me to make the non-microwave version of these when I was young and I loved them. Now my 10 year old daughter makes these all by herself in the microwave and they turn out perfect! Great recipe!!
