Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies


3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 cups granulated sugar

1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Big Scoop (about 1/2 cup) creamy peanut butter


Combine oatmeal and cocoa powder in a bowl. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar, milk, and salt. Bring to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Add vanilla extract.

 Stir in peanut butter until mostly combined.

Add oatmeal/cocoa mixture, and stir well.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a piece of aluminium foil. Allow to cool for 20 minutes… If you can wait that long!
