http://imagineannie.files.wordpress.com/2007/07/no-bake-3.jpgDid anyone else's mom make these heaven sent little doodie balls in the summer time ? This is the stuff of true genius, people. Chocolate, peanut butter and oatmeal all rolled up and made hard in the fridge. and the best part ? noone has to turn on that big stinkin' oven and heat the whole house up ! c'mon ya'll this a/c ain't cheap !!! for those err, challenged in the kitchen as well - they are REALLY REALLY easy. even for moi. bettye crocker i am not. be sure to sip something that reminds you of your childhood.. shirley temple, Old Fashioned, Manhattan, pbr.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal

Preparation:

In large saucepan, combine sugar, milk, cocoa, salt, and butter and mix well. Bring to a boil and cover saucepan for 30 seconds to allow steam to wash sugar crystals down sides of pan. Stir mixture and bring it to a boil that can't be stirred down for 1 minute. Then remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. Add oatmeal and mix well. Do not use regular or instant oatmeal; quick-cooking oatmeal is essential to the success of this recipe.

Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to let the oatmeal absorb some of the liquid.

Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto waxed paper . Let cool until you can touch the mixture; then reshape the cookies to make them more a ball shape. or just eat right now. before they've cooled. life's short , people.
