Boiled No-Bake Cookies are just what they say-no oven needed, only a stovetop. They are rich in chocolate and peanut butter, chewy in oatmeal, yet crunchy in nuts, and so easy to make. Once everthing is mixed in, you have to work quickly to drop the hot mixture on baking sheets before they cool-that's the only hard part (not really that difficult). My husband loves these; he remembers making them as a child and how yummy in the tummy they were then and still are!
Ingredients: 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, 2 cups granulated sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup evaporated milk, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2-2 1/2 cups quick oats, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
Instructions: Using two baking sheets, place a sheet of waxed paper on each; set aside. In medium saucepan place butter, sugar, cocoa and milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter melts. Continue cooking and stirring until mixture comes to a boil; boil for one minute. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter until melted, then add vanilla, oats and nuts and mix thoroughly. With two spoons, quickly scoop a tablespoonful of chocolate mixture out of pan and scrape off onto prepared baking sheets with the other spoon. Continue with remaining mixture. Allow to cool until cookies are set and can be removed from waxed paper to serving dish.
Makes about 3 dozen 2-2 1/2 inch cookies. Store in airtight container at room temperature or in refrigerator-they're good either way!
