Best No-Bake Cookies

This is my dad's recipe "tweaked" of course but the best no bake cookies in the world! We always put a little extra peanut butter in them to make them taste better and they set up faster! The faster they are done, the better! This is probably our favorite cookie recipe because we can half it for just a few cookies. We make this at least once a week. They are our favorite in the summer, we don't have to turn on the oven which makes our house hot hot hot! Grab a pot, make them, grab a glass of cold milk, and watch a movie or play a game! Fun family and friend time is calling!




Best No-Bake Cookies EVER

In a medium sauce pan-
Mix and bring to a boil:
1 c. Sugar
1/2 T. Butter
1 T. Cocoa Powder (Hershey's is the best, we have tried Nestle Toll House and its not as "chocolatey")
1/4 c. Milk (Almond or Soy Milk for Gluten Free)

Remove from heat and add:
dash of salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla 
(heaping) 1/2 c. creamy or crunchy peanut butter 
(creamy makes them smooth and luscious, crunchy adds a delicious peanut crunch to the cookie, whatever your taste buds desire)
1 c. Oatmeal (original or quick, both are great)

Mix all together and drop by spoon fulls onto freezer paper or parchment paper, we have found they work better than wax paper. Let cool a few minutes (as long as you can stand). Peel and eat with a glass of cold milk! DELISH!
