Pinterest WIN: No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These are the best and easiest cookies to make! They are so delicious. I made them for our family cookie exchange and they were a hit!



1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (or chunky but is seems to make a more crumbly dry cookie)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 -3 1/2 cups dry quick-cooking oats

Directions:

1. Add the first four ingredients into a 4-quart sauce pan.
2. Bring to a rolling boil and hold for 1 minute.
3. Remove from heat.
4. Add peanut butter into the hot mixture and stir until melted.
5. Add in vanilla. (almond extract is good also, but I only use 1/2 teaspoon almond and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla).
6. Mix in the oats and drop by tablespoons onto wax paper.
7. Let cool until set.
Or put in the refrigerator or freezer to expedite the process if you are not patient, like I am :-)
