No-Bake Cookies

We all need our chocolate fix, and oatmeal is supposed to be great for those of us nursing babies, so I figured I might as well post this recipe so that there is an easy place to find it, right? It's very simple and yummy, just follow the directions precisely and they'll come out perfect every time.

2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick oats

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except oats. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches a rolling boil. Allow to boil, still stirring constantly, for a minimum of 90 seconds. Remove from heat and immediately stir in oats. Drop by tablespoons full onto waxed paper and allow to set up for 30-40 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.
