Oldie But Goodie

Just about everyone has had these. But maybe not. Or maybe you forgot about them.
Anyway, it is quite possibly the best cookie ever invented, and if you're like me, you don't wait until they cool. You smear one right off the wax paper while they're still warm. ☺

No Bake Chocolate Drop Cookies

1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick oatmeal

Combine cocoa, butter, milk, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool completely.
Yields around 2 dozen.
