The recipe says not to make these before Thanksgiving or after New Year's Day. If nothing else, these don't set well in hot weather. They get all melty. Make sure you have wax paper!

list of stuff:
2.5 c. Quick oats
.5 c peanut butter
1 TBS vanilla
2 c. sugar
4 Tbs. cocoa powder
.5 c milk
1 stick butter
coconut to taste

make cookies:Mix oats, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut until crumbly and set aside. In a pot over moderate heat mix sugar, cocoa, butter and milk. Bring to a boil. Boil for exactly 1 minute (any longer and it may burn, any less and the cookies won't set). Pour over oat mixture and stir quickly. Drop on to wax paper while still warm. Let cool and set.
