Recipe Friday

Today's recipe--for cookies made from chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal--comes from my mother, who also provides its title:

Cookies that, If Successfully Completed, Resemble Doggie Doo

Foodstuffs required:
2 Cups of Sugar, minus one tablespoon (super secret trick!)
3 Tablespoons of Powdered Cocoa
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
3 1/2 Cup Quick Oats Oatmeal

Hardware you will need:
Various measuring cups and spoons
Wooden spoon
Medium saucepan
Soup spoon
Wax paper

Get started:
Combine the sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in the saucepan. Cook it, stirring frequently, over medium heat on the stovetop until it gets to a rolling boil. This means the center is boiling and the outsides look foamy. Let it continue to boil for exactly one minute more. Then remove it from the heat.
Next "fold in" the vanilla, peanut butter, and oats, stirring it until the peanut butter is melted in and the oats are all thoroughly spread throughout.

You're practically done already:
Use the soup spoon to scoop out dollops of the weird mix and drop each one onto the wax paper. There should be about two dozen in all. When you're done, let them cool until they are solid enough to maintain their shape.

Tada! Quick and easy dog poo cookies.
