Introduction: Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bakes
1 stick of butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy is best, but chunky works also)
3 cups oatmeal
1 sauce pan
wax paper or foil
In sauce pan melt butter over medium heat.
Once butter is melted add sugar, cocoa powder, and milk. Stir until consistent.
Bring chocolate mix to a boil stirring continuously.
Add vanilla extract and peanut butter, stir until consistent.
Turn off stove and add oatmeal, be sure to stir the whole time (it may be helpful to have someone else pour the oatmeal).
Spoon no-bakes onto wax paper (foil works too, which is what I used) 1 inch apart. You can make the no-bakes as big as you want, but the smaller they are, the faster they will cool.
Allow to cool for 1 hour, or until hard enough to pick up.
As a note, if they are not cooling fast enough for you, put them in the freezer.
