Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

So here is a recipe for some NO BAKE cookies. They are super easy to make, and you don't even have to worry about dealing with the oven. My grandma used to always make them for Christmas, and my mom would make them occasionally too. You can find a recipe for them online, but my family has been using this recipe for at least 30+ years.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

1 stick of butter
3 cups of sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 heaping tablespoons Hershey's Baking Cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 - 4 cups oatmeal

melt stick of butter
add sugar, milk, and cocoa, stirring frequently
boil for 1 minute and turn off heat
add vanilla flavoring, peanut butter, and oatmeal
stir until all ingredients are mixed evenly
lay out wax paper or foil for cooling
spoon cookies onto wax paper/foil for cooling (about 30 minutes)

Note: This recipe makes more than 5 cookies. I forgot to take a picture until there were only 5 left.

My grandma would mold her cookies into little balls and my mom would just spoon them out into oval shapes. I on the other hand was on the phone the entire time I was making these, so mine just got blobbed off a big cooking spoon and that was how they were left to dry. :)

My brother and sister and I used to make no-bake cookies like this when we weren't allowed to use the oven (a LONG time ago) in the summer. So simple and delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
