Daily Recipe: No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

2-cup sugar
1/2-cup milk
6-tbsp cocoa
1-stick or 1/2 cup margarine ( I used Blue Bonnet brand)

Boil these ingredients for 3 minutes med. heat in med. size dipper

Turn off heat, but do not remove pan from stove top. Add:

3-cup oatmeal - quick cook
1- cup peanut butter
1-tsp. vanilla

Stir well and stir fast. This recipe sets really quick.
Drop by teaspoonful full on wax paper. You will know within the first 5 minutes if cookies are going to set. Cookies will have a dull appearance. Let cool. Makes about 2 dozen depending on how big you like your cookies.

I think you should consider writing the Average Girl cookbook. You could make some dough (pun totally intended)!

Thank you, that was sweet. First, I need some REAL feedback, I need people to try these recipes themselves and let me know how it worked out. If I do write a cookbook, I will mention Two Date Diva for inspiration!!!!!

Okay, looks like I'm having BBQ cola ribs sometime this week! I might also attempt the no bake cookies and take them to the office and see what the verdict is.
