First, gather all your ingredients!
Check the recipe to make sure you have everything together.
Add the first four ingredients on the recipe. These will be sugar, butter, cocoa, and milk.
Mix together in a sauce pan.
Allow the ingredients to come to a boil, and continue boiling for three minutes.
This is the boiling process! Make sure you keep an eye on your timer.
While boiling your ingredients, set out paper towels and put a layer of wax paper over top. You will be setting your cookies on here soon!
Take the pan off of the hot stove. Add the last three ingredients, which is oats, peanut butter, and vanilla extract.
Mix together quickly with a spatula!
Use a melon baller to scoop your cookies.
Place them on the wax paper, evenly spaced apart. Do this quickly, because the cookies get hard very fast.
After you have finished, leave them to harden on the wax paper!
Don't forget to clean the dishes after making your cookies!
