These cookies are not only fast and easy, but tasty too. As a child I loved them because I could make them without mom's supervision. No baking required makes these a perfect treat anytime, especially in the summer when your house is already 98 degrees.

2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
4 T. margarine

Mix these four ingredients together in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute. After boiling remove from heat and add the following ingredients:

1/3 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt
3 cups quick cooking oats

Drop mixture into desired size mounds on a cookie sheet. Cookies will set in a few minutes. Personally, I advise eating the mixture with a spoon while it is still warm; this way it is gooey and delicious. If all cookies are not consumed in a matter of minutes or hours, be sure to store in an air tight container. These cookies dry out very easily, and can become quite crumbly.
