2 cups sugar 4 tablespoons cocoa powder 1/2 cup margarine 1/2 cup milk 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats 1/2 cup peanut butter 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Mix oats and peanut butter in bowl and set aside. Heat sugar, cocoa, margarine and milk in sauce pan until it boils. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Add oats, peanut butter and vanilla and stir. Drop by teaspoon on waxed paper. Let cool.
I have been looking everywhere for this recipe since losing my copy. These cookies are fantastic. Try using Almond extract instead of vanilla it's really yummy.

These were quick and easy and turned out great. They actually started to set as soon as I put them on wax paper which is difficult with choc oatmeal cookies. I'm sending them with my husband to hang out with his friends. I'm sure they will love them too.

Really fast, easy and tasty! An added bonus, actually makes the 3 1/2 dozen that it says it makes.

This recipe is easy and even if you use low fat peanut butter and skim milk it is still delish!! I keep mine cool in the fridge to maintain shape or they get a little crumbly.

This was my first attempt at making Chocolate Oatmeal clusters and I am no chef, but with this recipe in hand I managed to pull off some damn good cookies.

These are very sweet & rich, I would use a little less chocolate next time and more oats!

Easy, not to messy and quick. Also versatile - our oats were not the quick type, so we subbed equal amount granola and coco puffs. Worked great and taste wonderful.

I think this was missing butter. Turned out terrible.

YUMMMMMMMY!!! Very easy to make. Thank you for the recipe.
Just like the name says, this rich dessert is made with bread and essentially a custard sauce which is baked until set. Some of the variations on the basic recipe use croissants, pound cake, or even doughnuts instead of bread.
