Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Living on my own for the first time, I’m slowly beginning to learn how to cook, and I’m always on the lookout for a quick and easy recipe. So when my Aunt Christy sent me one for her Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, I had to try it out. These cookies are tasty, and nothing beats homemade cookies from scratch. The extra effort you put into making them yourself is totally worth it, and totally delicious. 



1 t. vanilla

1 stick of butter  

1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)

2 c. sugar  

2 1/2 c. quick cooking oats

4 T. cocoa  

1/4 c. peanut butter

1/2 c. milk

Mix the sugar and cocoa in a saucepan. Add milk and butter, bring to a boil stirring constantly. Let it boil for 1 1/2 minutes, keep stirring. Remove from heat. Add the remaining ingredients, and drop the mixture onto waxed paper. 

Note: Have all the ingredients measured before you start. When you remove the pan from the heat, you will have to work fast. After adding the remaining ingredients, stir until the mixture begins to thicken and will hold it’s shape when dropped by teaspoon onto the waxed paper. It will harden fast. Also, setting the waxed paper out before you start cooking will make things easier. Enjoy!
