1-1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
Mix the butter, cocoa, sugar and milk in a large saucepan.
Bring to boil stirring constantly. Make sure it's at a good rolling boil and boil for 1-1/2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the vanilla and oatmeal. (If you like peanut butter you could throw in about 1/2 cup here, too. I did not)
Drop onto wax paper and let harden.
I like this recipe because the cookies remain somewhat soft. Be sure to boil the full 1.5 minutes or they will be too soft too pick up. Don't boil longer or they may be too hard. It's all in the timing for these cookies!
