No Bake Cookies

Okay, daughters, what's the first word that comes to your mind when you see this recipe?
Sunday night?  (oh, that's two words)
Doesn't it just make you smile to think about seeing the waxed paper out on the counter top with just a few missing cookies- with only a chocolate smear where the cookie used to be and was consumed before set up?
Yes, nearly every Sunday evening our daughters would make (and consume) these cookies. I, like every other college student, learned to make them from a roommate.  I have to admit, since my daughters left home, I haven't made them very often or at all.  I guess I need to start making them for the grand kids!
No Bake Cookies
Put a large piece of waxed paper on the counter top, ready for later. 
In a large mixing bowl, mix together
3 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup cocoa

In a large saucepan, combine:
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup milk

As the butter melts, stir and combine.  Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute.  Remove from heat and stir in
1/2 cup peanut butter.
Pour hot mixture over the oatmeal mixture.  Stir to combine well.  Drop large spoonfuls onto the waxed paper   Let cool completely (if you can!) and then remove from waxed paper.  Store in an airtight container.
