No-bake cookies

This was a childhood favorite. Technically, this is supposed to be poured into a dish, and let cool before cutting it into squares and eating it. But I don't ever remember the cookies making it that far--we always ate it hot, with a spoon, right out of the mixing bowl. In fact, we were usually prancing around the mixing bowl with spoons at the ready, just waiting for the stuff to be poured in so we could descend on it like vultures.

You know what? I think it tastes better hot. But you decide for yourself.

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa
2 sticks of butter
2 cups sugar (but you can cut this back to 1 1/2 cups if you want)

Melt together in a saucepan, and boil for 2 minutes.

Pour this over 3 cups of quick oats and 1 cup of peanut butter. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Eat with a spoon.
