No-Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies
Yields: Roughly 3 dozen, using a small scoop

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 stick of butter or oleo

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal (quick oats or old fashioned)

You will also need: a large pot, a whisk, a scooper (or two spoons), and wax paper

Bring the first group of ingredients to a rolling boil over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Once mixed thoroughly, drop onto wax paper to set.

*I typically cut the butter into smaller pieces so it will melt faster. Set the wax paper out before starting, because the mixture will set up quickly. Measure oats and peanut butter while the other ingredients are heating up, so they're easier to stir in later. Once they are set, store in an airtight container. If the cookies are flatter, they will set quicker.
