This recipe is so easy my kids can make it! These cookies don't stay long at our house! My mom has made these for years and I am carrying on the tradition.


1 stick margarine
2 cups sugar
4 TBS Nestle cocoa
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 - 1 cup peanut butter depending on your taste (creamy or crunchy)
2 tsp vanilla


Melt margarine, sugar, milk and cocoa together and bring to a roaring boil. Boil for 1 minute. Take off burner and add quick oats and vanilla. Stir in oats and then add peanut butter. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Cool and enjoy!!

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
