No-Bake Cookies

One of our favorite treats :) They remind me of elementary school...I loved it when they served these for lunch. I remember all the kids lining up for seconds after everyone had gone through. You could buy an extra one for a quarter.

2 cups sugar
1 cube butter
2 TBL cocoa
½ cup milk

Mix and bring to a boil-stir-boil for one minute. Take off heat and add:

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup coconut
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats

Stir well. Spoon onto waxed paper or cookie sheets and let set in the fridge. I usually double this recipe because they don't usually last long :)

We made these growing up too but minus the coconut (because we didn't like it)- but we always called them "Summer Cookies". Probably because you could make them in the summer without having to turn on your oven!
