Melt butter, add evaporated milk, sugar, and cocoa. Stir to mix well. Let come to a boil, cook for exactly 90 seconds. Remove from heat, add vanilla ( will hiss and sputter a bit at first); then add peanut butter. Stir to let peanut butter melt; add oats. Remove from heat, drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let harden for 15 - 20 minutes, and hide a few for later, because if everyone starts eating, there won't be any left for later. :)
