Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

Just like you remember from the school lunchroom!  These were among my favorite treats in grade school.  No one I knew ever made these at home even though my family was friends with one of the lunch ladies.  I figured the recipe was a trade secret.  Then I found this online. I enjoy these at least three times a year now.

I hope you like them as much as I do.  They really are a blast from the past.

Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick oleo or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups old fashion oats

Put the sugar, milk, cocoa, and butter in a pan and bring to a hard boil.  Boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Add peanut butter and stir until incorporated.  Add vanilla and stir again.  Then add the oats.  Mix well.  Drop from spoon onto a greased or oiled baking sheet.  Refrigerate until hardened. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

I keep these in the fridge until they are all gone.  

Don't tell the lunch lady, but these are everything I remember.
