These always seem to hit my chocolate spot ~ and they are FREE
(no, not calorie free) 😛
1/2 cup milk – I use silk vanilla soy milk or full circle brand, you can use your favorite milk sub. as Rice milk works too
2 cups Sugar – no substitute
1 stick butter or margarine (I used promise)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups Oatmeal – I use Bob’s redmill as it is certified gluten free
Mix milk, sugar, cocoa and butter/margarine in a saucepan and bring to rolling boil. Boil 1 good minute. Remove from heat and add nuts, peanut butter, vanilla… mix well and then add oatmeal.
Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper until set/hardened.
please note that if the humidity is high or you didnt let it boil for the full 1 minute, you will have mush and they wont set. DONT THROW it away, as it is YUMMY as an ice cream topping -(even on soy or rice ice cream) 😀
makes about 2 dozen.
