Oatmeal Chocolate Goodies

I made these yesterday and my family loves them!

1/2 C. milk
1/2 C. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 C.unsalted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. peanut butter
3 C. oatmeal

Bring the milk to a boil and add the sugar, cocoa and butter. Stir until the butter melts. Turn the heat down and cook for one and a half minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and peanut butter. Stir and add the oatmeal. Mix well. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Refrigerate until firm. Makes four dozen cookies (I made mine bigger). Store in a tin, the layers separated by wax paper, in the refrigerator or in a cool place.

Recipe taken from The Body in the Bookcase by Katherine Hall Page.

I have loved these cookies for years. I had them first as a child at my best friends home. They had a large family and their Mother was always cooking. We were always hungry, so she taught us to make them. I won't tell you what we named them.. :) They are now my kids favorites and they make them a lot too.. I think I am going to make some tomorrow.. Have a great day..
