No Bake Cookies

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!

Oh, your last comment reminded me of whenever I wanted to eat something yummy and I didn't want the boys to have that same yummy thing, for good reasons, of course, I would sneak it out of the wherever I had it and then sneak me and it into the bedroom and close the door and eat it quickly before someone needed me. I will not bake these cookies cuz they're no bake and I'm sure everyone will enjoy them...thanks.
