Warning: these are way to quick and easy to make and are highly addictive. I have pretty much lived on these since that baby was born, not sure if it is because they are so yummy or because I keep telling myself that they are actually a health food. Maybe it is because I am sleep deprived and these live on the counter for easy access. If only I could figure out how to make them without all the sugar. The kids love to help me make these and they love them as much as I do. I am not sure what Matt thinks of them, poor guy never gets a chance to taste one.
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
2 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. coco powder
Bring the above to a boil over med./high heat. Boil for 90 seconds while stirring. Add
1/2 c. crunch peanut butter
3 c. oats (quick cook work better than old fashioned)
1 tsp. vanilla
Scoop hot mixture and drop by the spoonful on to waxed paper. Tell children they can't have any until they cool while secretly licking the bowl and spoon while they are not looking. Enjoy!
