Satisfying My Sweet Tooth

Fudgey Cocoa No Bake Treats/No Bake Cookies

I was craving something sweet but I wanted it to be something quick. I looked
to see what I had for ingredients and I had everything to make the no bakes.
The recipe is easy and quick to put together. I have trouble waiting for the
treats to harden so I always put them in the fridge so I have one sooner.

If anyone is interested in making these I am including the recipe here

3 cups quick - cooking rolled oats

2/3 cup crunchy peanut butter ( I didn't have any so I just used what I had)

1/2 chopped peanuts (optional) I didn't have any peanuts left

2 cups sugar

1 stick butter or margarine

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup cocoa

2 tsp vanilla extract ( I didn't measure just poured in a bit)

Mix together oats peanut butter and peanuts ( if you have any). Set aside.

Combine sugar, butter, milk and cocoa in medium saucepan. Cook over

medium heat, stirring constantly and until mixture comes to a boil.

I pour this mixture over top of the other ingredients in a big mixing bowl.

Mix well and place heaping spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper

or foil. I place them in the fridge so they harden faster.

I had two cookies with a tall cup of milk. Randy also had the same but then
I noticed later he was getting another one out of the fridge. I guess he also
had a sweet tooth to satisfy.
