These are very good. My mom used to make them for me after school quite often and now I do the same for my kids. Enjoy!

Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

My family calls these "preacher cookies". Thanks for the great recipe! I added 1 tablespoon of vanilla and they came out great!

I had been looking for just the right recipe for these cookies. I love them but had never made them until now. These were perfect and I will use this recipe from now on!

These were delicious Anne. I added some vanilla extract after I removed it from the heat for a little extra flavor. I made these for a friend who went wild over them and I'm making them again for her birthday at the end of the month. Goes great with a tall glass of milk. Thanks
