The Amazing No-Bake Cookies

We had a minor website snafu so here is the famous No-Bake Cookie Recipe:
2 Cups Sugar
4 Tablespoons Coco
½ Cup Margarine
½ Cup Milk
¼ Teaspoon Salt
½ Cup Peanut Butter
2 ¼ Cups Oatmeal (or more)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Mix sugar, coco, margarine, milk and salt in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Stirring constantly, bring to a roiling boil and boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Stir until peanut butter is dissolved, add vanilla and oatmeal. The consistency should be gloppy but not runny.
Place spoonfuls of mixture on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper or tinfoil. Place in freezer. We typically leave no bakes in the freezer permanently. If you’re serving them to guests, I’d recommend removing them from the freezer about 5 minutes prior to serving so they have a bit of an opportunity to thaw.
