Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This is an oldie but goodie.  One of my husbands favorites.  These no bake cookies are quick, easy and delicious.  To ensure a moist cookie that hardens correctly, be sure to pay specific attention to the cooking time and addition of oatmeal.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 3/4 cups Granulated Sugar
1 stick Butter
4-5 Tbsp Cocoa
1/2 cup Evaporated milk
1/3 cup smooth Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 -2 cups Quick Cook Oats

In a saucepan, over medium heat melt butter and add sugar, cocoa and milk.  Stir over heat until mixture achieves a rolling boil.  Allow to boil for 45 seconds.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter until incorporated.  Stir in oats, until your mixture is thick.  You want  your cookies to hold a good shape when you drop them, but be careful not to add too many oats or your cookies will be dry.

Drop cookies by teaspoonful onto wax paper or parchment paper.  Allow to cool.  Makes approx 24 2" cookies.
