I can assume that I am not the only person who hits a point in the day (normally afternoon) when I am really craving something sweet. Of course that something sweet is preferably something chocolate. With it being so hot nowadays (in Kansas at least) whatever chocolaty something sweet you want is much preferred to be non-baked so you do not have to turn on the oven and roast all occupants in the house. Therefore, the only logical solution considering the above criteria is ...
1 stick margarine or butter
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
Bring to a boil. Stirring continuously, boil for 2 minutes. Take off heat and add 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3 cups oatmeal, 4 tablespoons cocoa, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir. Drop onto wax paper and let cool. Refrigerate.
