No-Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 1/2 cups rolled oats

1. Combine sugar, margarine, salt, milk and cocoa powder in a large saucepan; mix well.
2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring continually. Boil, stirring continually, for 1 minute.
3. Remove saucepan from heat. Add vanilla and peanut butter (chunky peanut butter is yummy); mix until smooth. Add rolled oats; mix well.
4. Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls (i've found that an ice cream scooper works well) onto a surface lined with waxed paper. Let stand until cool. I usually put them in the fridge to cool as we tend to be impatient. :-)
