Oh my – when I want something quick, easy, chocolatey and just perfect, I make these.
1 stick butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup peanut butter
3 tbsp powdered unsweetened cocoa
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy sauce pan, melt butter, sugar, milk, peanut butter and cocoa.
Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour into a bowl with oatmeal.
Stir and drop by tablespoonful onto waxed paper.
Place into freezer to cool quickly, or allow to set for 30 minutes.
