No bake cookies

Remember those?? Aren't they so yummy? Well, my dear husband and I made these late tonight for tomorrow's lunch at church. I've been making these for about 20+ years now. gasp! If you've never made them and like the ingredients, give them a try!

No Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter

Melt first 4 ingredients together and boil for 1 minuute (while stirring).
Remove from heat and add:

1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
3 cups quick cooking oats

Stir together and quickly drop by spoonfuls on wax papered cookie sheet OR pour it into a 9x13 pan and cool, cut, and ENJOY. Great with milk or water.

I'll leave you this fine Saturday evening with a quote-

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
