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.
