I got this recipe from a father of one of my Girl Scouts in Mississippi in 1973. It's a favorite at my house and the Girl Scout is now the mother of my four grandchildren. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Bring margarine, sugar, milk and cocoa to boil. Let boil for exactly 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and peanut butter. Then stir in oats.
  • Quickly drop by large tablespoon onto wax paper laid on top of newpaper. Let cool, peel from paper and turn over to finish drying.
