I remember these from childhood, one of my favorite things to make on a rainy afternoon.
1 stick of butter (not margarine )
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats, quick or old-fashioned
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preparation:Place cocoa, peanut butter (if used), oats, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Combine the butter, milk, and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute. Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal and chocolate chip mixture; stir well. Drop by spoonful onto a cookie sheet and chill.
Hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
