Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

Nothing brings back childhood memories of Mom’s kitchen in the the summertime more than her “No-Bakes”. She made them so often that they were simply perfect every time! As the years wore on and the four of us grew up, she made them for special occasions, too. On one such day, as a group of her children, nieces, and nephews headed off on a 12 hour road trip, she handed off a carefully packed tin bursting with this treasured confection. The cookies barely made it to our destination as they were almost gone by the time we left our first stop along the way!

3/4 cup milk
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 – 1/2 cubes of margarine
3/4 cup peanut butter
4 – 1/2 cups oats
1 – 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Measure the peanut butter, oats, and vanilla extract and set aside in separate bowls. Combine the milk, sugar, cocoa, and margarine in a pan and bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for 3 minutes but not longer. Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter, oats, and vanilla, stirring after each addition. Work quickly to drop the cookies on waxed paper. Allow to cool.
