No Bake Oatmeal cookies

It has been a while since I've made these, but I think I will today. It is a good day for it, cold outside, the mood is right, I have all the ingredients & the kitchen is too clean...

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 3/4 c. sugar
4 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3 c. uncooked rolled oats
1 tsp. vanilla

Put 2 cups of sugar in a boiler; add 2 tablespoons of
cocoa. Stir. Add 1/2 cup of milk. Add 1/2 cup of butter or margarine.
Stir. Put the boiler on the stove. Turn heat to low; cook until it
starts to boil. Stir as it cooks. Boil about 2 minutes; remove from
stove. Add 1/3 cup of peant butter; add 2 cups of rolled oats.
Stir until well mixed. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla; let cool. Drop on
plate by spoon and refrigerate.
