No Bake Cookies

These no bake cookies are a favorite afterschool snack for our family (even the neighbor boys love them)!

No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

Melt butter in saucepan.  Add sugar, milk, cocoa, and salt to melted butter.  Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Place oats in a large bowl and pour chocolate mixture over oats, stir to combine.  Drop spoonful’s (I use an ice cream scoop) on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate until cookies firm up a bit (I love them really cold).  Eat!  Keep any extra cookies refrigerated.
