No-Bake Cookies

Everyone needs a good no-bake cookie recipe in their file. It doesn't matter if you're a fancy pantsy chef or baker or a home cook like me, these cookies need to be in your file! They are just a classic. If nothing else, make it for nostalgic purposes, to bring you back to your childhood, when these and chocolate chip cookies were just about the only cookies your mom ever made. I don't make these cookies often because they are so gosh darn rich, but when I have a chocolate craving and don't want to bake and spend a lot of time in the kitchen, these get the job done perfectly.

No-Bake Cookies
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
3 cups quick-cooking oats

In large pot, mix and bring to boil sugar, cocoa, milk and butter, stirring occasionally. Boil 1-2 minutes (no longer). Remove from heat and add vanilla, peanut butter and oats. Mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfulls, or scoop, on waxed paper and cool.
