Joe's Chocolate No Bake Cookies

My brother has been asking me to put this cookie recipes on my blog for a couple months now. He has been in Brazil for a year now and wants to have some good old fashioned American cookies. This recipes is his favorite. In fact my kids call these "Joe's Cookies". These are the perfect quick and easy cookies to make on a hot day when you need something chocolate and don't want to heat up your house. I usually don't even give them time to cool before I start eating them.

2 c. granulated sugar
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. butter
1/2c. milk
1/2 tsp salt
3 c. quick cooking oats
1/2c. peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium sized sauce pan over medium high heat add butter.

Cocoa powder
Milk and salt.
Stir until butter is melted and ingredients are incorporated.
Bring to a boil, and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until completely melted
Add quick oats and vanilla, mix well
Now working quickly before it cools to much drop by tablespoon full onto wax paper.
My 6 year old loves to help with this part, I thinks it because she likes to eat any stray pieces that don't make it to the wax paper.

Julia I love the chocolate no bake cookies. They are my sons absolute favorite. I was just thinking the other day i need to make him a batch. The only problem is the recipe i got from a friend hasnt turned out the last two times. The cookies did not set up and i ended up with a sticky mess to eat out of the pot. LOL.

I think i will give your recipe a whirl later this week. The Texas heat is a whopping 104 and later this week we will top 106 so no baking. This will be a nice treat. I will let you know how it all turns out. I have little helpers as well you daughter looks like quite the cook.
