> 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.
