Food Friday!

I love my family and I love putting smiles on their faces.  With Wesley, there isn't a lot that I can make that will do this for all 3 of my guys, but this does it nicely!  They almost don't usually have a chance to harden before fingers start invading!

No Bake Cookies
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes.
2. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla.
3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened.

Tip:  Some people have trouble with no bakes not setting up or being really crumbly.  The tip is to start timing when the mixture reaches a full rolling boil.  If you don't boil long enough, they won't set up and if you boil for too long they will be crumbly.  Hope that helps!
