No Bake Cookies

Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly."

1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 Cup Coconut (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, coconut (optional), and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened. Store in cool, dry place. Store in refridgerator or freezer for longer storage.

I just made these cookies the other day and here is the pic. The pic doesn't make them look all that good but these sure are very tasty and they go fast too. You may want to make a double portion!!! These cookies are one of my husbands favorites.
