Best No-Bake Cookies


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 mintes
Yield: 24 cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cp cocoa
pinch salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups oats

In large saucepan, combine sugar, milk, cocoa, salt and butter - mix well. Bring to a boil and cover saucepan for 30 seconds to allow steam to wash sugar crystals down sides of pan. Stir mixture and bring it to a boil that can't be stirred down for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Add oats and mix well.

Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or aluminum foil. Let cool until you can touch the mixture. Let cool completely - or don't! They're delicious when they're hot and not hardened. Store tightly covered at room temp. You can also pour this into a 9" square pan that has been greased with unsalted butter, let cool and cut into squares.
