No Bake Cookies

These little cookies are perfect for after school snacks just make sure you leave plenty of time for them to set.  My favorite thing about these is how quick and easy they are... I typically only make 1/2 of the recipe because this makes more cookies than we are able to eat.                                                                                                                                                        

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup coconut {optional}
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, milk, cocoa, and butter.
Let boil for 1 minute. 
Add peanut butter, vanilla, oatmeal and coconut.
Drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls, onto a sheet of waxed paper, until cool, or spread into a cookie sheet.
