When I was growing up a tradition that my Dad and I would do is make these yummy No Bake Boil Cookies.
They take minutes to make and are so yummy and even a bit healthy since they have oatmeal in them.
Makes 3 Dozen cookies
2 Cups Sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa
1 Stick Butter
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (optional)
3 cups dry uncooked oatmeal
Boil sugar, Cocoa, Butter, Milk and Vanilla for 2 to 4 minutes. Take off burner. Add Oatmeal and stir. Then drop 1 Tablespoon on wax paper. Let dry.
