Simpler than simple, these little wonders involve few ingredients and require no oven time at all!
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 T. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick cooking oats
In a large saucepan, dump together the butter, cocoa, milk, sugar, vanilla, and peanut butter.
Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute. Sage advice for the day – This stuff is hot. It may look (and smell!) really, really, good – But it’s really, really HOT!!
Dump the oats in the pot and gently stir together.
Quickly (before it sets up) drop by spoonfuls onto a sheet of waxed paper and allow to cool.
Serve and enjoy!!
