1/2 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oatmeal, not instant
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
Mix butter, sugar, milk and cocoa together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoon full (larger or smaller as desired) onto wax paper and let harden. They will set up in about 30-60 minutes.
These will keep for several days without refrigerating, up to 2 weeks refrigerated and 2-3 months frozen.
Pack into ziplock sandwich bags and attach the following note to each bag.
I woke up with such scare when I heard Santa call... "Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts, those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts".
I got an old shovel and started to scoop, neat little piles of "Reindeer Poop!" But to throw them away, seemed such a waste, so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile. Old Santa, passed by and he sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky... "Well they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"
