Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 - 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 Tbsp. peanut butter


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. :)
