These are great, and always go fast! Kids can help with ingredients, but gets VERY hot and sticky on stove top!
What you need:
~ Cookie sheet with wax paper on top.
~ 2 cups white sugar
~ 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
~ 1/2 cup milk
~ 1/2 cup butter
~ 1 tsp. vanilla extract
~ 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (smooth works too!)
~ 3 cups original oatmeal
~ In a saucepan over medium heat combine sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
~ Boil for 1 minute, lower heat and add vanilla, salt, peanut butter, mix until peanut butter melted.
~ Remove from heat and add oatmeal, mix well until all oatmeal is evenly coated.
~ Drop onto wax paper one tablespoon at a time, allow to cool (you can also place cookie sheet in the fridge to cool faster!)
