Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

I've been making these since I was a teenager, and just like the Velveeta Fudge, misplaced the recipe trekking from state to state. Thanks to babs at Bakespace.com for posting a great Comfort Treat!

4 ounces butter or margarine

1/2 cup milk

2 cups sugar

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

3 to 4 tablespoons peanut butter, optional

3 cups oats, quick or old-fashioned

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place chocolate chips, peanut butter (if used), oats, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.

Combine the margarine, milk, and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a rolling boil.

Boil for 1 minute.

Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal and chocolate chip mixture; stir well.

Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.
