No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

1 stick of butter
2 cups of sugar
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

Put the butter, sugar, cocoa and milk in a saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until it begins to boil. Let boil for a minute.
Remove from heat and add in peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until the peanut butter is melted.
Pour in the oats and stir.
Spoon onto a parchment covered pan and let cool completely. I usually pop the pan in the frig for a bit until the cookies are set.
This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies. Store them in an airtight container and they should be fine for a couple weeks (if they haven’t all been eaten).
