Chocolate no-bake oatmeal cookies = YUM

This is one of my families favorite treats for the holidays. Make sure you have milk in the fridge because you can't eat these without it. They are very rich. Oh and don't tell my Mom that I just made these. They are her favorite :) 

Chocolate No Bake Cookies

2 - cups granulated sugar

3 - tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 - cup butter

1/2 - cup evaporated milk

1/2 - teaspoon salt

3 - cups quick or old fashioned oats

1/2 - cup creamy peanut butter

1 - teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium sized saucepan over medium high heat add butter, sugar, cocoa powder, milk and salt. 

Stir until butter is melted and ingredients are

Bring to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until completely melted. 

Add vanilla and oatmeal while mixing well. 

Drop by tablespoon full onto wax paper. 

Let cool completely on waxed paper. 

Remove the cookies once they have set up. They are delicious so make plenty because the go fast. At least they do in my house.
