Recipe: Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

This is a recipe from my childhood. My mother got it from a friend of hers. But it's one of my very favorite. Of course, anything involving chocolate and peanut butter would be a favorite of mine.

Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies
2 cups (400g) sugar
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla or 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
1/4 cup (80g) butter
1/2 cup (120mL) milk
1/2 cup (125g) peanut butter
1/2 cup (30g) shredded coconut
2 cups (170g) oats

 Combine the sugar, cocoa, salt, vanilla, butter and milk in a saucepan.
Mix up the ingredients.
Cutting the butter into chunks helps it melt faster.

 Heat the mixture on high, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts

 And the mixture comes to a boil.

 Boil for 1-2 minutes
 Or until it comes to a rolling boil. Be careful not to let it boil over. This mixture is extremely hot.
 Remove from heat. Add peanut butter.
 Mix through until completely melted.
 Then stir in the coconut and oats.
 This is very hot! Be careful. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray.
 Then spoon on about tablespoon sized puddles onto the parchment paper. These make around 2 dozen cookies.
 Don't worry if you drip a bit. Just an extra snack for you!
 Now, allow these to cool to room temperature. You can put them in the refrigerator or let them cool at room temperature.
 If you refrigerate them, it will only take 15-20 minutes to cool. At room temperature it takes close to an hour.
 When cool, they should remove from the parchment paper without too much trouble. If they're sticking, they probably need to cool a bit longer.
 These cookies are lovely and indulgent. Chocolatey and peanut buttery. Gorgeous and delicious.
 These are lovely and chewy on the inside, yet keep their shape.
 I love these cookies and could eat a whole batch myself.
 Hope you enjoy the recipe!
