Recipe Tag

My friend had this tag on her blog awhile ago and I've been meaning to post a recipe for it.  I figured that since I'm stuck in my room all night while all the scouts are playing nerdy games like Halo and this weird sci-fi card game, this is the perfect chance to post.  

Since everyone always asks me for my no-bake cookie recipe, I'm going to post it so everyone can get it and stop calling me!  Just kidding, I love phone calls, so maybe I shouldn't post this... Anyway, here are the rules for the tag:  1. The recipe has to be quick and easy.  2. You have to be able to pronounce the ingredients and the cooking instruction terminology. Post as many recipes as you like.  

And now here it is.  The world famous No-Bake Cookie recipe that managed to attract boys to our freezer all through college and is the only reason my sunday school class still likes me. 

1 cup milk
1 cube butter (REAL butter.  None of the fake margarine crap or Josh will complain)
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa

Boil for about 45 seconds and NO MORE.  If you boil too long they turn out all hard and gross.
Then add:

3 cups whole oats (only the whole ones, not the fake quick ones.  Bleh!)
1/2 cup peanut butter (or if you're Heath, make that 2 cups!)
1 tsp. vanilla

Stir it all together and then put them on wax paper on cookie sheets and stick 'em in the freezer.  And leave them there until you eat them.  Seriously, they are sooo much better when they're frozen. 

And I tag everyone, but especially Ma King, so she can post her AMAZING pumpkin cake recipe.  And everyone should look at her blog to get the recipe and then make it and tell her how amazing it is, because it is that good.

Larsie, you are beautiful. And now your recipe makes me hungry. Which isn't very fair because I'm still at work. Also I miss you. :) I found you because of Jules. It's her fault. Also, I stalk you. And her. Lol. So - I have a fairly uninteresting blog that I've only had for a few months. But you should remember me. :) That is all. Love you!

My boys loved these cookies growing up because it filled them with gas. I hope that has stopped.
