These are by far my husband's most favorite cookies and the kiddos like them too. Plus I love them because they are extremely easy and quick to make!
1/2 cup of butter ( 1 stick salted)
2 cups of sugar
4 tablespoons of Hershey's coco
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of peanut butter ( creamy)
3 cups of quick cooking oats
1 tablespoon of vanilla
a pinch of salt
Mix butter,sugar,Hershey's coco and milk in a medium sized pan and bring to a full rolling boil for 2 minutes.( do not over cook)Then immediately remove it from the heat.
Quickly add in the peanut butter,oatmeal,vanilla and salt and mix together until all ingredients are blended together. ( If you feel like the ingredients are not forming together well enough you can add a bit more peanut butter)
Then using a tablespoon, you will scoop the cookies directly onto the counter for them to harden. ( I usually put wax paper down on the counter before scooping the cookies.) Form the cookie shape as you scoop them out, you can use the back of the spoon to form a more flat shape.
It only takes about 15 - 20 minutes for the cookies to harden, and they will just lift right off of the counter. ( or you can use a spatula).
Once they harden a little bit they are ready to eat!! Yum!
