Chocolate No Bake Cookies

This is a mom recipe that I brought along with me when I got married. It's probably about the same as most other no bakes out there. I ALWAYS have this stuff on hand, which makes these a good last minute treat. I also like to make them when it's too hot to use the oven.

Chocolate No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
3 TBSP cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla

Combine butter, sugar, and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spoon heaping Tbsp-fulls onto wax paper. Press down slightly; cool.
Makes about 2 1/2 doz
