I dug the recipe out of my family cook book.
Aren't these cards awesome? I love having recipes written in my mom's handwriting.
It's like she is in the kitchen cooking with me.
The stuff that sinful things are made of.
First, mix butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa in a saucepan.
Bring to a "full, rolling boil."Looks like boiling lava to me, but smells heavenly!
Then add oatmeal (always double check your assistant's measuring skills!)
Add peanut butter and vanilla. This is an awesome gadget- perfect for measuring goopy ingredients. When you are ready to add them, you just push the plunger in.
Leave it to Alton Brown to figure that one out!
Mix it up! Mix. Mix. Mix. Mmmm. Resist the temptation to lick the spoon.
It's hot. Trust me. Resist. The. Urge.
The spoon the deliciousness onto waxed paper. Let them cool.
Still drying. Not ready yet....
Hmm.. NOW I think they are ready!
They may not be pretty, but they will add sunshine to your day!!
