No-bake cookies


This is an easy no-bake recipe that allows the leader or the older Guide to have time to explain, and reinforce the awareness of stove tops,extreme heat and stirring necessary as well as hot from the pan substances and patrol work paying dividens when smaller groups are used to achieve an over all goal…. i.e. that of eating.

All so good for showing how hot sugar mixes crystalizes and snap when a drop is dripped into the handy cup of cold water near by. Hopefully only used for snapping mix not burned fingers.

Ingredients:

• 2 cups sugar
• 3 tablespoons cocoa
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1/4 cup butter
• 3 cups quick cooking oats
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
Method:
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, milk and butter and place over medium-high heat.
Bring to a full boil and boil for 1 minute. Stand there and carefully count out loud as the stirrer is mixing the hot bubbling liquid.
Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, blending well.
Working quickly, drop by teaspoonfuls onto a tray covered with baking paper and allow to cool. Put tray aside out of reach. The mix will be hot for a while so no finger poking to test.
