No Bake Cookies

So, I've been on this No Bake Cookies kick lately. I've made them 4 times this week already. They are so yummy. Plus the kids love to help make them. It's the recipe I got from my Grandma Jennings.

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. margarine
3 T. cocoa
1/2 c. milk

Bring to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in:

3 c. quick rolled oats (or 3 1/2 c. regular oats)

Cover pan with lid and let stand 5 minutes. Then stir in:

1 t. vanilla

Scoop with cookie scoop onto waxed paper and let cool. Makes about 24 cookies.

I LOVE those cookies! Growing up we always had them at my neighbors house. We always called them deer dropping cookies--though I think no-bake sounds a lot better!! Hope you and the fam are doing well!

Just looking at them makes me want to make them! Yum! I'm going to have to try your recipe. Mine has peanut butter in it and since my kids don't care for peanut butter I am left eatting them all! I'll let you know how they turn out.
