No Bake Cookies

My husband loves no bake cookies, so I had to ask my mother-in-law for her recipe. He of course loves the sugar cookie recipe that she's shared with me as well, but I'm only going to share the no bake cookie recipe with you. Let me know what you think if you give them a try!

no bake cookies

1 stick margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats (or can use crushed crackers)
1/2 cup smooth-style peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cover 2 cookie sheets with wax paper. Combine in a medium sauce pan the first 4 ingredients. Boil mixture on medium -high for 1 minute (or until a soft ball stage). Stir in the other 3 ingredients, mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto covered cookie sheets. Refrigerate until firm.
