Boiled Chocolate-Oatmeal Cookies
"This is a great recipe for kids to help make and requires NO OVEN BAKING! Teens can make them in a snap, younger ones would need some supervision (hot stove). My grandchildren help with the measurements and can hardly wait for them to cool a bit before they start grabbing them!" Recipe submitted by Zoe Duran.
2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter (any kind, I've use plain and crunchy)
1/2 to 1 cup nuts, if desired
- Bring to a boil sugar, cocoa, milk and butter. Cook 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and quickly add oats, peanut butter, vanilla and nuts.
- Drop by teaspoonful on waxed paper. Let stand 1/2 hour until cool (if you can).
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
