Everybody loves these. And they are so easy to make:

*No Bake Cookies*

1/2 C water
1/2 C cocoa
2 C sugar
6 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 C peanut butter (smooth or chunky, both work)
3 C "quick" rolled oats

Bring water and cocoa to a boil; stir with a whisk. Add sugar and
butter, and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir
in peanut butter and vanilla. Add oats and mix well with a spoon. Cool
slightly, and drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper.

You can substitute old fashioned rolled oats for half of the quick oats
to give them a little more texture.

HTH, Bob
