Don't you just love those days when you are in the mood to make something and you actually have all of the ingredients on hand?!?! That happened to me yesterday - I couldn't believe it. We aren't really stock the pantry kind of people. More like we buy what we plan on eating and that's it. But I wanted chocolate oatmeal cookies and had all the stuff to make them.
This from memory (which isn't usually that good so I'll double check myself tonight)!
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats
1 tablespoon vanilla
Heat the first 4 ingredients on med heat until they start boiling. Boil for 1 minutes while stirring. Remove from heat and add last 3 ingredients. Stir. Drop onto wax paper (I was out so I used foil) and let cool. Cookies will harden.
Mine aren't completely hardened in the picture. I didn't get a picture of them completely hardened. It was late by that point.
Yes, I did scrap one off before it was done - I couldn't resist!

They are delicious and remind me of when I was younger and my mom would make them! Enjoy!
