Boiled Cookies: A Family Favorite

Theses yummy cookies are known as Chocolate No-Bakes to most of the population, but for some reason my family called them Boiled Cookies when I was growing up. Doesn't sound too appetizing, does it? But they are quite the opposite. Yumo! And they only cost $2.27 a batch to make.

Boiled Cookies (Chocolate No-Bakes)

2 cups sugar                             ($.24, Aldi, $1.89 4lbs)
1 stick of margarine                 ($.19, Aldi, $.75 box)
4TBS  baking cocoa                 ($.28, Kroger, $3.19 canister)
1/2 cup milk                             ($.08, Aldi, $2.49 gallon)
1cup peanut butter                   ($.95, Aldi, $1.89 18oz jar)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups quick oats                ($.53, Aldi, $2.29 42 oz canister)

In a heavy saucepan combine sugar, margarine, cocoa, and milk; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for one minute and then add peanut butter, vanilla and oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and allow to cool and set up. Makes approximately 44 cookies.
