Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

My favorite cookie is probably the Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie.  Since we are snowed in today, me and mom decided to make some.  They are so easy to make and don't take long at all.  There are two ways you can make these, either on the stove or in the microwave.  We like to make them in the microwave because they are just as good and take only 4 minutes in the microwave to make.  Here is how to make them:

Step 1: Get out all your ingredients and utensils.
You will need:  1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 stick of margarine, 2 cups of sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3 cups of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of milk and 3 tbsp of cocoa.

Step 2:   Mix all the ingredients together, except the peanut butter and oatmeal, in a large microwave safe bowl. 

Step 3: Make sure all ingredients are stirred well and then place bowl in the microwave, on high for 2 minutes.

Step 4:  After 2 minutes, take bowl out of microwave and stir well.  Once mixed well, put bowl back in the microwave for an additional 2 minutes.  Take the bowl out and stir well again.

Step 5:  Add peanut butter and oatmeal to mix and stir.  Once it's stirred well then you are ready to spoon mix onto wax paper to form the cookies.  We use a tablespoon to make ours but you can choose how big you want them.

Step 6: Let them cool and then they are ready to eat!  This recipe will make around 2 & 1/2 dozen cookies.  Enjoy!
