A friend says that she really enjoyed these no-bake cookies, so I'm posting the recipe.
Boil together over medium heat for 2 minutes:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
4 tbs cocoa (unsweetened baking cocoa)
Remove from heat and stir in:
2 tbs vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick rolled oats
Spoon onto wax paper and let cool.
