Cover it in chocolateand a miracle or two...

Ok, so here we are waiting for an a/c guy because we are baking in our own house. I hate when there are a/c issues because you just feel like melting. However, the show must go on. I am not heating the oven when the thermostat says 86 and rising. So, when you want a chocolatey treat with no oven use, try Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies.

Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

1/2 C Butter2 C Sugar
1/2 C Milk
4 Tbsp Cocoa
1/2 C Peanut Butter
3- 3 1/2 C Quick cooking Oats
2 tsp. Vanilla

Add the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, and boil for 1 minute. Stir in the next 3 ingredients and drop onto wax/foil paper. Let cool until set. 

By the way, as for the a/c unit, he got it working temporarily but it seems there are so many things wrong. Too numerous to list. Seems we need a new a/c unit.

These are always a favorite! I remember first making them in Home Ec... about 40 years ago :-)
This is a fridays favorite for sure!

These look amazing! Have you ever tried them without the peanut butter? I'm wondering if any of the other ingredient amounts need to be changed if I were to omit it.

Thanks for sharing this on The Frugal Girls' Chic & Crafty Party linky - I'd never have found if if you hadn't.

These are my all-time favorite cookies! And I can completely sympathize about your rising thermostat... YUCK. Hope you're back to a cooler temperature now.

Just wanted to let you know these will be featured at this weekend's link party on While He Was Napping. Come grab and featured button, if you'd like. And, I hope you'll share some more great projects.
