No Bake Cookies

Ever have those evenings where you want something sweet and chocolaty, and homemade, but it's too late to whip together a batch of brownies?  It happens to me all the time, and this is my fix.  We love them, and they don't last long around here.

2 cups sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ stick butter
Pinch of salt
½ cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats

In a saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, butter, salt and milk.  Bring to a boil and boil for one minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and oats.  Spoon onto wax paper and allow to cool. Enjoy!

There you have it - simple, simple, simple and now you are just minutes away from a yummy little treat!!
