Virtual Cookie Swap - No Bake Cookies

I have loved following Bermudaonion's and Booking Mama's  Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies!  What better way to end the event than with a virtual cookie swap.  Cookies are something that I love to bake.  I am always on the lookout for new cookie recipes, especially around the holidays, so I can't wait to visit the other bloggers participating, to see what cookie recipes they share.  Mine, is one that I absolutely love.  I have made this one many times for cookie swaps and gifts for friends.  They are super easy!  I hope you'll try them.

No Bake Cookies

2 cups white sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (can use creamy if you'd like)
3 cups quick cooking oats

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, cocoa, milk and margarine.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and stir in vanilla, salt, peanut butter, and oats.  Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper.  Allow cookies to cool for at least 1 hour.  Store in airtight container.

I love these cookies! I think they're good any time of the day since they include oatmeal and peanut butter. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
