Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Makes about 18
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 3 cups Quaker Oats Quick Oats (you MUST use the quick oats or the cookies won't turn out)
In a large pot combine cocoa powder, butter, milk and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and peanut butter, stir until peanut butter is melted. Pour in oats and mix quickly until all the oats are covered with the chocolate.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop some of the mixture onto the wax paper and pat down with the back of the scooper to make the cookies flat. Do this quickly as the mixture starts to harden quite fast once the oats are added.
Tip: I suggest measuring out your peanut butter and oats ahead of time so the chocolate will be at the right temperature when you add them.
Let cookies set for about 10-15 minutes or until firm and you are able to pick them up without them bending.
Finally, eat 'em up! Because they are gooooood!
