This recipe is from a Church library book "Mud Pie Annie" (by Sue Buchanan and Dana Shafer) that my daughter checked out. We made this recipe together as a treat for daddy who was at work.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup cocoa
- 1⁄4 lb margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups oatmeal (instant)
- Mix first 6 ingredients in a sauce pan and cook until it boils.
- Boil for 1-3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add peanut butter and oatmeal. Drop by teaspoonfuls on to wax paper.
- Chill until set.
Wonderful! I've made this recipe a bunch of times and like it much better than my old no-bake recipe. They always turn out just right. I've found the recipe can hold quite a bit more oatmeal than called for, that way I can justify eating them for breakfast :p
I use to make this reciepe when I was a kid. I forgot all about it. Now I can pass this one one to my kids. Thanks for a quick, easy and tasty receipe. and some great childhood memories with "my mommy". Thanks again
My mom made these and alot of other things when i was young. These are one of my favorite cookies and now my daughter's. I like to try to different things so i have added butterscotch chips, vanilla chips, coconut, peanuts,& toffee chips in with them. They all have all turned out good and rich. I didn't use them all at the same time but would be worth trying.
