I would like to share one of my favorite cookie recipes with ya'll! This is one cookie my Mom could make.. growing up she made these cookies a lot!  This chocolate oatmeal cookie is a no bake cookie.  Very simple to put together... Kid tested and Mom approved!  They are wonderful!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup peanut butter (creamy)

In a saucepan over med heat melt butter.  Add sugar, stir. Add milk, vanilla & cocoa. Stir until all is mixed well.  Bring mixture to a boil, boil for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and quickly add peanut butter and raw oats.  Scoop by spoonfuls (tablespoon) onto waxed paper; let cool.  Makes about 3 dozen.
