No Bake cookies

I love these chocolaty, peanut buttery no bake cookies. You can't get much easier than these and so yummy. I have tried a few different recipes and this is my favorite. This one always sets up for me. I usually just pour it all out on a cookie sheet that I've covered with wax paper. Then break it apart into pieces. But for you guys, I made a few cookies for a nice picture. :)

No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp of cocoa (I usually make these heaping because you can't have too much chocolate)
1 stick of butter (this time I used smart balance 50/50 sticks and they worked great!)
1 tbsp of vanilla (I always leave this out. You can add if you like but vanilla is expensive and I'd rather save it for something I can really taste it in. I've never noticed a difference with/without it)
3 cups of oatmeal (I use 1-minute quick oats)
1/2 cup of milk
1 cup of peanut butter (I like to use crunchy sometimes)

In a heavy saucepan, bring to a boil the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Let boil for 1 minute. Then add the peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture with an ice cream scoop or spoon into individual cookies. Let cool and they will firm up.

These yummy cookies definitely Work For Me!

Happy Eating!
