Tim/My Man/Pappa brought this recipe with him when we became one 33 years ago. His mom , the best Mother~in~law ever, must have made them often, or perhaps talked Tim through making them because he walked down the aisle and said “I Do” with this recipe filed in his handsome blonde head. i asked him to write the recipe down years ago so the kids and i could make them independently, Tim will whip them up on a whim without the strawberry blossom card if he is craving chocolate = always !!
Fudgy, sweet, gooey oatmeal chocolate cookies.
Too simple to be delicious, too addicting to be a good thing.
Stir together in saucepan:
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder (i use about 1/3 cup = Fudgier)
1/2 cup butter ( real butter matters )
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until a slow boil begins, continue to stir and slowly boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in :
3 cups old fashioned or quick oats, slightly different results, both are yummy.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract ( real matters, but do as you will )
or if you want to really wow your family, just dump the entire mess on waxed paper, spread thinnish with your rubber spatula, allow to cool and let them break off a chunk as they pass by. They are all going to be gone before bedtime anyway.
Kaye’s Peanut Butter Variation
All things are better when shared and all things are better with peanut butter.
Add 1 cup of creamy or chunky peanut butter to the fudge mixture right before you add the oats. i prefer a no sugar added, natural peanut butter but you can use what you like.
Yum, Yum, Yum !!!
Tim will not get near this version. He is a man of habit and he has no interest in messing with what was already a good thing, which works in my favor considering he is in the habit of coming home to me and he considers us a good thing. ; )
Post note : this is the one and only thing Tim cooks ever, unless you count warming soup or frying a pork chop. There will not be a lot of Tim recipes showing up here, adjust your dreams and hopes accordingly.
