  1. In a saucepan place sugar, cocoa and the milk and stir with a whisk . Take the butter and slice into this mixture over low heat until all is mixed and melted.
  2. Bring this to a rolling boil and boil for 2 l/2 minutes... I test it by taking a cup of cold water and putting a spoonful of the mixture into the cold water. If it forms a ball it has boiled long enough. If it does not form a ball, it is not done yet. This may take 3 minutes.
  3. Turn off heat and add the peanut butter. Stir until it is mixed and then with heavy spoon mix in the oats and stir all together and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.

I also found these to be very sweet for my taste and not much of a peanut butter taste. I will try again with 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup more peanut butter.

This was a good recipe. I added a tablespoon of vanilla and a tad bit more milk as my cookies turned out drier that I would have liked. Overall, a yummy recipe and I will be making these again!

These are my favorite cookies I make an all-time.

Really, really sweet. I already cut back on about half a cup of sugar but its still too much!

I did not enjoy these cookies at all. Too sweet and with an unpleasant texture. Not very peanut buttery, either. I'm glad others enjoyed them, but for my tastes, it was a waste of ingredients. S...
