This recipe is SO easy & quick. It has always been my favorite “go to” recipe when the kids told me they needed 2 dozen cookies at the last minute! All you need is 7 ingredients, a cooking pan and something for them to cool on. And approximately fifteen minutes after you start them, they are just about cool enough to eat!
Today, I’m making them as a Valentine’s Day treat.
To begin, make sure you get all of the ingredients pre-measured and ready to add because this recipe goes quickly!
You will need:
1 Stick of Salted Butter
2 Cups of Sugar
½ Cup of (canned) Evaporated Milk (shake can well before opening)
Bring to a boil. Boil & Stir for 1 minute. Remove from burner.
Now, add the following:
¼ Cup of Creamy Peanut Butter (no nuts!)
6 TABLEspoons of Powdered 100% Cocoa
2-1/2 Cups of “QUICK” Oats (fast-cook instant oatmeal in the cardboard cylinders)
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Mix-in the above ingredients & drop mixture, by spoonfuls, onto wax paper, paper plates or spoon into small baking cups.
On special occasions, embellish with candy, sprinkles or anything to go with your holiday, seasonal or special occasion theme. Let Cool…. Enjoy!
